Owl Class Newsletter – Autumn Term 2 2022
Reminders for Autumn Term 2 2022
Please can you make sure your child has a coat and a sunhat at school every day as the weather is so changeable and a sunny morning can often change to a rainy afternoon. We like to take advantage of our lovely outdoor area and encourage the children to explore and investigate in the fresh air as much as possible whatever the weather (within reason!).
Please ensure your child has a named bottle filled with water with them each day.
Reading diaries will be sent home, and new eBooks assigned, on Fridays. Please return Reading Diaries to school on Mondays.
We will be sharing poems on Mondays, and on Wednesdays we will be celebrating children’s out of school achievements, so please send any trophies or certificates in on Wednesdays.
On P.E. days children need to come to school on these days in their P.E. kit. This term P.E. will be on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Updates will continue to be uploaded to ClassDojo, so please remember to check for updates. If you need to get in touch with me, please message me directly on ClassDojo. If you would prefer to email, my email address can be found using the contact box on our class page on the school website.
