Chaffinch class are enjoying the start to the new school year and are settling in very well. We are all quickly becoming familiar with the new key stage and classroom routines. They are enjoying getting to know the new class teacher, Miss Elliott, as well as our brilliant classroom support teachers, Miss Ford and Miss Brown. PE will be on both a Monday and Tuesday this year. We are lucky to have new specialist coaches who will be facilitating these lessons. Please make sure that children have both a summer and winter PE kit, as they will continue to take part in PE outdoors throughout the year. Homework: Please continue to read with your children at home regularly. This will help to improve both their word reading and their comprehension skills. Each Wednesday homework will be set which will then be collected on the following Monday. This will alternate between subjects and will be sent home in a homework folder with a homework book. Spellings will be given out each Monday and will be tested the following week. We look forward to a productive and fun year!
