Forest school – Thursday 10/6, 24/6, 8/7


Just a reminder …...

The PE kit is as follows:


  • Plain white t-shirt, preferably without any logos. This doesn’t include football tops.
  • Black/navy shorts.
  • Trainers or plimsolls
  • Hair should be tied back and earrings should be removed whenever possible. If ears are newly-pierced, then they may be taped up for PE lessons. Necklaces and watches should be removed.


During the winter children may wear the following:


  • Black or dark blue tracksuit bottoms (these should be plain). Sport leggings are also allowed but these must be plain dark blue or black.
  • Their school jumper.


Please remember on these days children come dressed in either their PE kit or appropriate Forest school clothes for the whole day.

Just a few reminders.

As the weather is getting warmer please can you make sure that you bring to school

  • a water bottle
  • a sun hat
  • sun cream ( or have it applied before coming into school).

Handwriting rhymes for correct letter formation. In class we are now looking at using cursive letters within our writing, which hopefully will help the children with the size, starting position and with keeping their writing on the line as each letter will now start on the line each time. Here are the letters   



Reading is an essential part of each day at school and the children in the Hedgehog class love to share and read a range of books.


Please could reading books come into school everyday, even if the children haven't read, as we like to share their books at any given chance.


As the children's book are becoming longer and more detailed we will be changing books on Monday's and Thursday's. This gives the children a 3 day cycle. As well as just reading the books, children can retell the story, answer the questions given at the back of the books or just reread the stories to be come more fluent and accurate with the words.  


Remember each time your child reads, even if it is just a page, please sign in their reading record book so they can be given their sticker and work towards each reading bug.


As we now are part of the Reading Eggs program and your child completes some reading tasks on it, please record that into their reading record book as this is another way of earning stickers for the class reading chart and individual reading bugs.

Key vocab and coverage Term 1 and 2 - Superheroes.

Hey you what you gonna do?
I'm going to raise some money.
Hey you what you gonna do?
I'm going to go for a walk.
Hey you what you gonna do?
I'm going to be a hero.
Hey you what you gonna do?
I'm going to climb the Roughs!
