Thursday 15 and Friday 16 are school holidays and we return on Monday 19 September.
- Homework will be given out on Wednesdays and expected in on Mondays. Please ensure that your child has the correct school uniform. In particular please ensure your child is wearing black shoes. Girls should wear plain white socks and boys should wear black or grey socks. You can review the school’s uniform policy here.
- Please remember to send in and label your child’s snack box and water bottle, as well as a hat during the hot weather.
- If for any reason your child is unable to take part in PE, please send a signed message in your child’s communication book. Your child still needs to bring in their PE kit to enable them to participate as a coach, an official or to give feedback. If your child would be swimming, they should bring their normal PE kit.
- ECA and BISCAP letters should now be with you. Teachers have been provided with updated bus lists.

This week we will be investigating common 3D shapes. We will use our knowledge of 2D shapes to see what shape their faces are, how many edges they have and how many vertices. We will continue to sort, order and match them. The key focus is name recognition of both 2D and 3D shapes. We will continue to revise our counting beyond 20 and number formation.
