EPIC Planning Autumn Term
Spring Term EPIC 2024
Monday (PM)- Children to wear school jumpers or red cardigans with t-shirt and suitable bottoms such as leggings, tracksuit bottoms or shorts (summer) and trainers into school on this day. Children will need to be able to fasten their shoes themselves. This is essential for the children's safety while taking part in physical activity. The children will also be doing the daily mile every day weather permitting.
We are very fortunate to have such a rich learning environment literally on our doorstep. Every fortnight on a Wednesday, we will be completing activities using our local area. Please wear appropriate clothing for the weather which includes, waterproof coats and wellies in the Winter.
Here are the dates for Spring term (subject to change) :
Wednesday 6th March
Wednesday 20th March
Homework will be given out on a Monday and should be completed by the following Monday.
Please find the weekly homework on the class blog. Children will also have a free choice library book every Friday and this needs to be returned each week. Each child will have a Read Write Inc book each week and these need to be returned on the day highlighted.
At Casllwchwr, we do many forms of reading:
Our new reading system will be up and running after the first 2 weeks of settling into the new classes. We will send details home with further information. We are continuing with our online reading scheme called 'Reading Eggs'. This is an exciting and valuable tool to help raise children's confidence in reading. Children will have an individual log in and they can use it at home. this will become part of year 2 homework.
Fruit and Drinks
Healthy eating is a priority in our school and we are encouraging everyone to bring in a healthy fruit or vegetable snack for eating during morning breaktime. Please bring in a water bottle (with your name on it) every day for use in the classroom and will need to be taken home and brought back each day. Please can you ensure that water bottles for classroom use are filled only with water. Other drinks are allowed for packed lunches i.e. squash or fruit juice.
Website, X (Twitter) & Dojo:
Remember to check our class blog to see what we have been learning and our X (formerly known as Twitter) feed to see pictures of the lovely things we do. Our X account is @casllwchwr1 and we use the hash tag #cllpyear2. If anyone needs a bit of help to set up an X account, pop in and we can help you out. It’s very simple to use and so good for seeing what goes on in the classroom. We try to upload photos to X a few times a week. We will continue to use Class Dojo as a reward system.
