Welcome to Phoenix

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Hutchinson and Ms Solana
Spring Term 2 Key Reminders
PE is on Tuesday AND Wednesday this term. Please wear PE kit on both days.
Please send your child’s book bag in with them every day. This will allow us to send home letters and prevent them from losing things from the classroom to home. Replacement book bags can be bought from the PTA for £7.
Your child will bring home a new reading practice book every Monday. This will be a fully decodable book. We encourage you to listen to your child read at least 3 times a week and record it in their reading record. Your child will also bring home a sharing book that they have chosen themselves from our library; this is a book we would like you to enjoy reading to your child.
Homework will be sent home on a Tuesday and will be due on the following Monday. The homework will either be English and Maths/Topic, based on work that is relevant to our learning. It is important to encourage your child to complete the homework as independently as possible however some work will require working together.
Your child will be bringing home a maths game to play which is for you to play with them. They will be swapped every Friday. Please ensure they come back complete each week.
Please can you provide your child with a water bottle at the start of the year. It will need to be named. We will send the water bottle home daily to be washed. Only water should be provided. We will fill the bottles with fresh water throughout the day.
Milk and fruit
The children will receive a piece of free fruit in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. You can order milk for them to have at break time. Please speak to the office if you would like to order milk. If your child does not like a variety of fruit then you are welcome to send in a piece of fruit that you know they will enjoy. We are a healthy school so no crisps, chocolate or junk food please.
The children will be doing PE on Tuesday and Wednesday. Children can come into school wearing their PE kit. We are hoping that most PE will happen outside therefore they will need to wear warmer clothes in the colder weather. Also, the children will be staying in their kit all day so being warm and comfortable is important! Please can you remove your child’s earrings on a Tuesday and Wednesday.
