FOR YOUR ATTENTION: As discussed in our initial parent- teacher meetings, we need to allow the 'Write and Tell' (homework) books to remain untouched for a period of time before they are marked. This will now be the case for the red reading records, therefore they will be taken out on a Monday along with the write and tell book. They will be returned to you on a Friday along with 2 reading books for your child to read. During the week, the children will bring home a 'sharing' book. We do not expect the children to read this book independently, but this will create an extra opportunity to share and discuss a new book together.
Book bags will come home with everything you need in them on Friday 2nd October, as opposed to the first full time day on Monday 28th September. Thank you for your continued understanding and patience.
Welcome to Great Berry! We hope you have enjoyed coming to play in your classroom. We are looking forward to seeing you all on the 21st September.
This half-term our topics will include Myself, Family and Friends and Autumn. Every week we will upload a Weekly Overview, which will give you an insight into some of the activities we will be doing in school that week.
Homework/Write and Tell books will be given out on a Friday. They will need to be returned by the following Monday. Ideas for the homework will be available on the Weekly Overviews. Each week please give feedback on how your child found the activities, by leaving a short comment with their homework.
Each colour team will have an Explain and Tell date once, each half term. This is an opportunity for your child to talk to their class about somewhere they have been, something they have achieved, a toy they like to play with or an animal or person that is special to them. Before your child's Explain and Tell day, it would be helpful to talk to them in preparation for what they could tell their friends. Please feel free to send in a covering note so that we can support them with this. There will be a chance for your child to answer questions from their peers about what they have shared.
The colour group dates are as follows:
Friday 2nd October- Ruby (red) Group
Friday 9th October- Amber (yellow) Group
Friday 16th October- Emerald (green) Group
Friday 23rd October- Sapphire (blue) Group
For your attention: PE will begin after the October half term, however please feel free to send your child in with their PE kits at any point up until October half term. This will remain on their peg until needed. Thank you.
Keep checking back on this page for more updates and to see some of our brilliant work.
Please note that jewellery is not allowed to be worn in school. This includes hoop earrings, bracelets, anklets and necklaces. Only small studs are allowed, although these have to be removed on PE days.
