    Readers:
    The children will all be receiving a new reader called 'Looking after Zara'  tomorrow to read at home. They have been introduced to this reader already. I am asking each child to read up to page 9. Some children may have been asked to read more/ less. If they have they will know themselves!

    A small number of children are working with a different reader that was given to them by Fiona. They will be reading 'Looking after Zara' at a later date. This group will know how much they should read.

    Team Teaching
    The class is split into groups of 5/6 and each group receives 45 minutes of literacy work with one of the assigned teachers. Some of these groups have received readers for homework so check with your child about whether or not they have reading tonight.Some groups have a reading log in their folder to keep track of their reading progress. 

    The children have team teaching folders and copies. Many of the children are forgetting these each day. Can you check that your child has their team teaching folder in their bag every day.

    On Friday the children can dress up in their Halloween costumes. There will be prizes for the best costumes!
    On Friday we will also have a cake sale where the children can bring in cakes and buy cakes on the day. 

    Spelling Folders and Afterschool clubs

    Hi all,

    Last week the children were given their spelling folders for the year. Each week the children will put their new spellings into the folder and then when they receive their spelling tests these will also go into the folder. 

    We have put the tests to date into the folders but I have not put their practice sheets in yet as some children have them at home/ in homework folders etc. If you have any of these sheets they can be added into the folder in the same pouch as that week's test. 

    The children were given forms for various afterschool clubs last week. These teachers are asking for the forms and money back ASAP as spaces are limited. 
    These forms are to be given directly to the teacher in charge of the club and not to the office.
