Dear Parents of Hedgehogs,
We will be having a small change to our routine as of w/c 14th June. Our reading books/ Ditty sheets have previously been collected and re-sent out on a Friday.
However, from the second week of Summer 2, I will require your child to bring their reading folder in every Friday and these will be left in school over the weekend until Monday. This will allow us to give out new books every Monday, and collect these in on a Friday. This allows time for the books to be ‘isolated’ ready for collection from the Library on Monday morning for the next book to be sent home, and for continuity throughout the Key Stage. Please keep in mind we are unable to provide your child with a new book until they have brought in their previous one.
If your child forgets to bring their folder on Friday, please remember to bring this in on the following Monday if you can.
Your child will be sent home with a ‘sharing book’ from our book corner in class on Friday. This book may not match their current reading ability, however this is a book to share with family members over the weekend.
Along with their sharing book, Year One children will still be sent home with their homework on a Friday. We will keep reading folders in school over the weekend so please make sure your child’s homework folder (green/yellow folder) is in your child’s reading folder at all times. This means your child will be able to take home just their homework folder and a ‘sharing book’ on a Friday.
If you have misplaced your child’s homework folder, please come and ask and I will try to locate another for you.
So, to confirm:
- Reading folders in every Friday, and Monday (if they forgot it on Friday)
- Homework folders should be put in reading folders ready for homework on a Friday (Year One only)
- Friday- children will be sent home with a ‘sharing book’ (and Y1 homework)
- Monday- children will have a new book/ Ditty sheet to read throughout the week in their reading folder.
I hope this makes sense, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you are not sure about any of the above information, or have any queries. I am always at the gate in the mornings and afternoons.
I hope you are enjoying your half term!
Miss Davies 🙂
