Reading the Game

Dear Parents

I hope you have all enjoyed a lovely Christmas with your children and I wish you a very happy New Year.

In Rhino class this half term we are very privileged to be working with Neil Homer on a programme called “Reading the Game”.  This programme is being delivered in conjunction with the  Shrewsbury Town FC in the Community.  The programme captures the motivational power of football and sport to inspire children to read more and improve their English skills.  This is a six week programme that will start this Tuesday and be delivered in school each Tuesday afternoon for the six weeks.  This will form part of our PE lesson as the session is half classroom based and half practical outside playing sport.

Please can you ensure your child has their PE kit on Tuesdays from 8th January 2019.  It is really cold now so for some children shorts or leggings are not warm enough and I am happy for them to wear tracksuits bottoms and fleece tops over their PE kit (whatever is comfy but keeps them warm enough to enjoy the session, I know I will be wrapping up to join in too).

Please could children also have their indoor PE kit in school as we will be doing gymnastics when hall availabity allows.

Forest school will continue on a Thursday as usual and again please ensure your child has warm and waterproof clothes and wellies.  If the weather is dreadful, Forest School will move indoors but we do aim to get the children out into the environment as much as possible.

Our topic for this term is “Frozen Kingdom”, we hope the children will be inspired by all of the aspects this topic has to offer.  Look out for the homework jigsaw, this enables them to get creative and we welcome all of the things they have made into school.

Should you have any questions please do ask.

Kind regards

Mrs Wenlock
