HEADTEACHER’S MESSAGE BOARD
Welcome Back! Happy New Year. I hope you had a great Christmas. We have had a really positive first week back and the children are busy in their classes learning new and exciting things.
In the line at quarter to nine, start your learning bang on time! Please ensure your child is on time – it really helps to start the day well.
Attendance The best help that you can give is to make sure that your child attends every day. This enables them to build upon their learning and helps their understanding. Every school day is fully planned to help your child to achieve, so excellent attendance is vital. Please also ensure that your child has a healthy breakfast e.g. cereal, combined with lots of early nights, to ensure they can fully concentrate and give their best.
Reading Your son/daughter has a reading book which is set to their level and understanding. The best help you can give your child is to listen to them read daily. It is important to stop them regularly, to check their understanding, as this is the main aspect of their reading tests in May. What are the characters thinking/feeling? How do they know? Look at the layout of each page and how photos/diagrams in the text are used. Please record in their Reading Diary any observations/thoughts/if you feel that they have achieved well. This helps to build a close learning partnership between home and school. Thanks.
Class Newsletters Class Newsletters will be coming out next week so you can really see what your child will be doing in the following term. Helpful hints of how parents can support children at home will be included. We thank you in advance for your support this term.
