- Reading books should be returned to school daily so that the children can also read in school and it is important that you tick the children’s communication books when they read at home.
- As the weather is beginning to change please make sure your child comes to school with suitable named outdoor clothes; a raincoat with a hood and rain boots, which they can change into to go outside when it is wet. Please label all items with your child’s name!
- Spare clothes: please remember that accidents do happen and it is very helpful to keep a spare set of named clothes in your childs cubby basket. Please include socks!
LEARNING THEME: HEALTHY CHOICES
THE BIG QUESTION: AM I MAKING HEALTHY CHOICES?
We will be talking to the children about healthy choices, particularly in relation to diet and exercise. We will be asking the children to think and talk about the healthy choices that they make and how they could make even more healthy choices every day.
