Dear Parent/ Carer

Information on our:

Handwriting and Spelling Practice Sheets


Outdoor Learning Equipment

This term we will be sending home a handwriting book with your child every Friday.  Please support your child by practising writing at least three lines of each sound in their handwriting book.  Please follow the correct letter formation as directed on the sheet at the front of their book.  All books should be returned to school every Monday morning.

We will also be sending a list of spellings home with your child every week.  Again please support your child by practising these using the ‘Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check’ method as explained on the reverse of the sheet.  The spellings will be sent home on either a Wednesday or a Friday and your child will be tested on the following Wednesday.

This term, as part of developing our outdoor learning provision, we are going to set up the outdoor area before the children arrive at school in the morning and put everything away at the end of the school day after the children have gone home.  Please can we ask that you DO NOT allow your child or their siblings to play with any of the equipment before or after school.  We have spoken to the children about this at school and they understand that the resources are set out ready for their learning time later.

Thank you for your support.


Yours sincerely
