Once the sun comes out, please ensure
child has sunscreen applied at home before coming to school. Due
to SAFEGUARDING issues the teachers are not permitted to apply
sunscreen. Children also need a sunhat at school. If
possible, could your child not wear Crocs or flip-flops? We have so
many trips and falls with these particular fashion items!
PARENTS’ EVENING this term is for 1:1 meetings with your child’s key teacher. Please book your ten minute slot with your team leader after half term.
IF YOUR PERSONAL DETAILS/EMERGENCY CONTACTS CHANGE, please let the Team Leader know straight away. This includes ALLERGIES/FOOD INTOLERANCES/HEALTH ISSUES etc.
Please don’t leave any scooters in the Church or Lower Hall lobbies. Scooters can only be left in the Vestry back garden.
Over the coming weeks, the Child Profiles will start coming home. We hope you enjoy them! Please bring them back when the teachers ask you to!

Literacy ‘homework’. This term the classes will be doing the following:
Lower Hall: Rhyme of the Week
Vestry: Sound of the Week
Puffins: Capital Letters
As you know, we teach phonics at The Jordans and it is very helpful if
you use the phonic sounds rather than the letter names.
Please find examples of the phonic sounds below:
“a” as in “apple”
“b” as in “bun”
“c” as in “cat”
“d” as in “dad”
“e” as in “egg”
“f” as in “fun”
“g” as in “goat”
“h” as in “happy”
“i” as in “igloo”
“j” as in “jet”
“k” as in “king”
“l” as in “lamp”
“m” as in “mum”
“n” as in “nut”
“o” as in “orange”
“p” as in “pot”
“q” as in “queen”
“r” as in “run”
“s” as in “snake”
“t” as in “top”
“u” as in “up”
“v” as in “van”
“w” as in “watch”
“x” as in “fox”
“y” as in “yacht”
“z” as in “buzz”
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT IF YOU ARE HELPING YOUR CHILD WRITE HIS/HER NAME; ONLY USE A CAPITAL LETTER FOR THE FIRST LETTER.
Even if it is easier to write a name using capitals, it is very difficult for your child to relearn the correct formation when they go to ‘Big School’!
