PE

Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit.

A full kit includes:

  • White t-shirt;
  • Black shorts;
  • Suitable trainers/plimsolls
  • Black tracksuit bottoms/ leggings

Please ensure their PE kit is clearly labelled and in a PE bag. It will also help to have coats, hats, lunch boxes, drinks bottles clearly labelled.

Home-learning and reading

Children will bring home a reading book to practise their reading at home. We expect the children to read daily to help them consolidate their early reading skills. Reading practice can also be key word practice as it is important that the children can recognise these words by sight. Please comment in their reading diaries when you read with your child. This will allow us to monitor their progress and reading at home is recognised as part of a reading rewards scheme. From the second half of the Autumn term children will be asked to complete spelling, maths and literacy/topic home-learning weekly.  These will be set each half term and need to be uploaded to Classdojo. 

ClassDojo

This fabulous tool is a great way to keep up to date with the learning and upcoming events within Boscawen Class and the wider school community. Please check ClassDojo for up to date photos, videos and current class information.  It is also possible to send messages and communication via ClassDojo.

Finally, If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to catch one of us before 8:40am or after 3:20pm. By working together, we can help support your child as they continue their learning journey through the school. We very much look forward to supporting your children this year.
