Just a few little reminders -
P.E Days - We have P.E on a Tuesday and a Friday, please make sure P.E kits come into school on a Monday and then they will go home on a Friday.
If your child has their ears pierced, please ensure they are removed on PE days.
Reading books - Reading books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday, please aim to read with your child every night. Remember, now we are in Year 2 there is a lot more emphasis on comprehension, therefore, your child may be asked to read their book more than once. Please ensure reading books/diaries are in school every day as we hear your child read at different points during the week.
Homework - We will continue our Learning Logs in year two and they will be sent home on a Friday each week and need to be returned on a Thursday.
Daily reading is expected and also Spellodrome. In regard to Spellodrome, if your child gets 1000+ points in a week then they will be awarded a DoJo and a MASSIVE smile from Mr. Williams! If they get between 500-999 points they will get a BIG smile. If they get less than 500 points then unfortunately they will lose a DoJo! We are currently setting up the new Spellodrome classes so don't worry, your child cannot complete it just yet!
Forest Schools - Fortnightly - please see school website for timetable, our first session is on Wednesday 18th September! Children can come to school in forest school clothes, please send your child's uniform into school that day in a bag! Please remember a clean pair of shoes too!
As in year 1, the children will have a 'continuous snack' time, this means that they can have their snack during any part of the morning when they would like it. Unless your child has paid to have school fruit this half term, please send them into school each day with a piece of fruit to eat for their snack. Please label all snack containers.
Water bottles - Children will need a water bottle to have in their classrooms, please make sure it has their name on. We will fill them with fresh water each morning and send them home on a Friday. Please return bottles to school the following Monday.
Hot days - please ensure your child is sent to school wearing suncream and that they bring in a hat with their name on! Likewise on colder days a warm coat and hat is recommended!
Clothing - Please could you ensure all clothes are labelled clearly.
This year at Ewloe Green, we are trialling a new cursive handwriting scheme. The document below shows the formation animals we will be using and rhymes that we will use to assist the children to learn and remember the correct letter formation. We will be teaching the children a letter a week in the order of the letters on the document. This half term we will begin by working through the 'ladder' family.
We are having a really busy week at school. The children have been reading and writing numbers within 100, writing an ending to the story of Mog and the V.E.T, learning the Welsh names for some pets and in Collective Worship we have been talking about memories from Reception and Year 1. They have also been thinking about what makes their friends special and we will be typing these next week. We have also been looking at pictures of skeletons and trying to guess what animal they belong to and been thinking about the class rules. We are also starting some Spellodrome work at school and all the children now have their log in details in the back of their reading logs. The children will be able to use these from next week.
Most of the children have brought back their Learning Logs and have covered them with some fantastic pictures, stickers and photos. Well done Class 6.
