Sports day will be held on Wednesday 12th July. Please can you ensure that your child has a water bottle with them and that they are wearing a t-shirt in their house colour.

Achievements

This week in P.E the children have been working hard practising for Sports Day. We look forward to the lovely day.

We Are Learning

This week we have read the story ‘Oliver’s Vegetables’. The children have discussed the story and shared with each other their favourite vegetables. They have enjoyed making a salad and discussing how to prepare a variety of vegetables. The children have been doing observational drawing and painting of flowers and vegetables. Please encourage your child to discuss with you what they have learnt.

Homework

For this week’s homework we would like the children to draw a picture of different vegetables and label them. Please encourage your child to use their Fred fingers to spell and support them to write their letters correctly. Remember to read with your child and write a small comment in their reading diaries.

Year Group Events

None at the moment but we will keep you informed.

Homework

At Dorrington, homework is considered to be a vital part of the children’s education, as it not only supports but enhances the learning taking place in school. We ask that all parents and carers support children in their homework and encourage them to take responsibility for their own learning.

Homework will be given out every Friday and includes one piece for literacy, numeracy, science/IPC and spellings. In addition, we ask that children read at least three times per week to an adult and have their reading records completed accordingly. As an ongoing commitment to drive progress in mathematics at Dorrington, children also have a multiplication project to complete each week. All homework will be collected on the following Thursday.

P.E.

Each week children participate in two physical education sessions (one indoor the other outdoor). These P.E. sessions play a vital role in educating children about the benefits of enjoying a healthy lifestyle as well as promoting the spiritual, moral social and cultural aspects associated with P.E.  It is therefore important that all children participate in these sessions.

Please ensure children have the appropriate P.E. kit for their PE days:

White T-shirt
Black Shorts/Tracksuit bottoms
Suitable footwear (Trainers for outdoor P.E.)

 

If you have any questions or queries regarding your child, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to arrange to speak to a year group teacher or make an appointment if necessary.

E-Safety

At Dorrington, we believe that the Internet plays an important role in developing children’s learning. As part of our commitment to E-Safety we recommend that children use  ‘Safe Search’ (Click the link below) when browsing the Internet at home. Safe search is designed to make it safer for children to access webpages. However, it is still recommended that children are always supervised when using the Internet.
