Welcome back letter
Dear Parents and Carers,
What a great first week in school! The children have all settled so well and are already getting to know the new routines. We have all been so impressed with them. Over the next week we will pop some photos on here to show you some of the things the children have been getting up to, and the different areas in our classroom so you, as parents get an idea of what your children are doing!
A few handy things for the start of term....
The Bishop's Hull Books of Everything (BHBoE) have arrived and your child has brought it home along with two reading books and a shared text (stuck in).
Please read at least 3 times a week. It’s so important they read little and often, particularly in the early stages of reading. Your child can read their book or the shared text. The shared text will change each week and is a text for you to share with your child, we don't expect your child to read every word! Please help your child to spot key words and talk about the text together. We will be reading this together in school too.
We will collect all of the BHBoE's in every Friday so we can see how your child is getting on at home. They will keep their reading books though so you can continue to read over the weekend too. Please, please record when your child reads at home so we can monitor. When your child reads at school, we will not be recording in books at the moment (due to the current situation), but we will make a comment weekly when the BHBoEs are collected. In school your child will be listened to on a weekly basis. If your child needs to change their reading book, just let us know when you drop them off.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to drop us an email or telephone the school and we will get back to you.
Things you can do to help at home:
If your child is off poorly for any reason we will have some activities that can be done at home linked to what we will be doing at school. Please click on the star at the top of the page!

Don't forget to look on the Forest School webpage for forest school type activities you can do in your home and garden.
Lots of them are 'off screen' ideas.
