Reading

We love reading and would like children to read at home as much as possible, with a minimum of 4 adult signatures in their Reading Record each week. We will be checking these records weekly. Please ensure your child has their Reading Record in their school bag each day so they can be checked and used when reading to an adult.

 

Home Learning

Below is the home learning expectations for Autumn 2. Please remember that the project element is in addition to weekly reading, spelling practise and times tables practise (including related division facts). Please note there should be no physical element of the project brought in to school this half term. However, children are expected to have their Reading Records in their bags daily.

Star Work of the Week

For the week 23rd - 27th November, Mrs Hardy has finally made a decision and chosen the following story as the the Star Work of the Week. Well done to everyone as the writing was great! However, HUGE congratulations to Mila who produced this wonderful story during our innovation stage.

 

 

Routines

The door to Juniper will open at 8:40am and finish the day at 3:10am. You will be greeted by Mrs Hardy, Miss Stewart or Mrs Dunmall. Children will sanitise their hands as they enter the building.

 

Please ensure your child comes to school with enough layers to stay warm as the classroom must be well ventilated. We also recommend having a coat in school every day as children will be going outside daily.
