MESSAGES

  • As the weather is now changing, please make sure your child is well equipped for the day ahead with named, appropriate rain clothing such as a rain coat and wellington boots.
  • COOKING: As we will be preparing some food and cooking next week please do make sure that any allergy information is up to date and correct with your child’s teacher.
  • PE KIT: Lots of children are coming to school without their PE kit saying that they are ‘sick’ and so not doing PE. PE lessons are conducted inside throughout the year. Please be aware that PE is an important part of your child’s curriculum and they should be prepared and safe during the lesson by wearing the appropriate clothing. If your child is not well enough for PE, please keep them at home so that they can recover fully before returning to school.
  • JUNK MODELLING! We are excited that the children are getting creative and want to build models and make different things, but we need your help to supply bottles, toilet roll inners, boxes, lids and more! Please ensure that there is no glass, and that everything is washed before sending it into school. Thank you.
  • BISCAP/PE/Swimming: We are so excited going to our specialist lessons and BISCAP classes. Help us to keep all your child’s belongings safe by naming everything clearly with name and class.
  • Uniform: we are growing in independence and getting changed for PE is an important part of the lesson. Please remember to send your child’s PE kit in a bag, so that they can change within the PE lesson time.
  • We are looking for parents who are able to volunteer their time to help with our Early Years Library. This would include keeping the books in order, scanning books in and out, reading to children, demonstrating book care and making the book area looking inviting. Please email Liz Peacock if you would like to volunteer e-peacock@bisspuxi.com
  • Parent teacher meetings will take place on October 31  and November 2.  If you have asked for an appointment you should have received an appointment time. Please ask your teacher if you are unsure. We look forward to sharing your child’s progress.
  • Children who are ill need to be at home to recover as we cannot  care for sick children in school and do not want illness to spread to the others. Please see our school policy for these common occurences:

-Diarrhoea (2 or more episodes in 24h that is new or unusual): Stay home for 48 hours since the last episode.

-Vomiting (more than 2 times and/or occurring with fever): Stay home for 48 hours since the last episode of vomiting

-Vomiting (1 isolated occurrence without fever): Stay home for 24 hours since vomiting

-Fever (temperature equal to or more than 37.6 degrees celsius): Stay home 24 hours after the pupil is found fever free without intake of fever lowering medication

If your child is ill, please let your child’s teacher know and also whether the illness is contagious or not.

LITERACY/PHONICS

We will continue to enjoy stories and books. We like to tell our own stories to our friends and teachers, and we are modeling making books and adding writing to our pictures.

We will also be looking at recipes and how these are different from stories, seeing if there are any sounds or words that we know in them.

PHONICS

We are consolidating these sounds s a t p i n d g o c k m e u r ck and working on blending them together to read and write simple words and captions e.g. cop, mat, ‘sit on a pin’.

The children are getting much better at the first group of ‘tricky words’ I, the, to, go, no. Look out for them in your reading books!
