Start of Term notices:

General routines

Children should come into school through the main entrance in the morning by themselves with all their belongings.   They are dismissed from the classroom at the end of the day and leave through the main entrance. If they cannot find whoever is collecting them they should return come back into school and tell an adult. We would be grateful if you could make sure your child is aware of what they are to do at the end of the school day, especially if they are going to after school club, being collected by someone different or walking home on their own or with siblings. 

Book Bags and Home/School communication

Book bags in Key Stage 2 are not checked every day by school adults – please encourage your child to hand in letters/return slips etc. directly to us.  Blue home/school books should be used for routine communication between home and school and your child should bring their book to us in the morning if there is a message for us to see.  If we have not replied, the chances are that we have not seen your message! If urgent please ring the office or email me. 

Reading

Robins children are encouraged to take responsibility for changing their own reading books and recording their new book in their home/school book. Your child should be recording when they read in their home school book. These are checked daily and children can earn house points for their team to reward them for regular home reading. Robins children should be reading at home 3-5 times a week, the more the better!

Times tables/Maths homework

Times tables tests will be on a Monday. Maths homework will be a mixture of different tasks and will be set on a Monday. Please can you initial your child’s blue book when maths homework tasks have been completed. We will be setting maths homework tasks electronically using our new platform 'Purple Mash'

P.E

This term we have PE on a Monday and Tuesday. Please send your child to school dressed in their PE kit.  PE is a plain white or house T-shirt with plain, dark bottoms. Your child should have jogging bottoms/a long sleeved top available for outdoor PE. Outdoor trainers are needed – please don’t send your child in plimsolls.

Learning logs

Your child will bring home their learning log book on Friday 16th September and is expected to complete 3 tasks over the half term. The guidelines are in the front of their learning log as usual. 

Water

Please ensure your child has a named water bottle in school. Regularly drinking water is proven to aid concentration and a lot of headaches in children are thought to be directly linked to dehydration. 

Autumnal weather

Please can you make sure your child has a waterproof coat in school every day. We do go outside to play when it is raining.

Teacher contact

We appreciate that it might be difficult to catch us before or after school.  If you want to speak with us please either telephone school and leave a message and we will ring you back or email us. No concern is too small – we want your child to be happy and enjoying school life and if there is an issue it is always good to try and resolve it quickly.

Mr Jones and Mrs Underwood
