A topic map for EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2 can be viewed on our curriculum page.
During Term 1, 2 and 3, Year 2 will be doing one session of swimming on a Monday afternoon at the Meridian Leisure Centre in Louth. Please note boys' trunks should not be below the knee and girls should wear a one-piece swimsuit. Swimming caps should be worn for long, loose hair, and they are available to purchase in the office. We would appreciate it if your child has their PE kit in school for the whole week as additional PE lessons will take place during the term.
We ask that your child brings in their water bottle each day. Children are encouraged to drink water throughout the day, and we feel that it is important for them to have their own named water bottle in school at all times.
We also ask that your child brings their book bag to school each day. It is important not only for the books and other items which go home but also for any correspondence that needs to go to parents. Please check the book bag daily to look for newsletters and latest communications.
Reading is a very important part of the curriculum and integral in a child's life. Please put in a brief note to say you have shared the book together. We are starting an incentive in Beech and Willow Classes where children can earn merits for the number of times they have read at home. Children learn to change their own books in Beech Class but if you notice your child isn't managing this, please leave a note in the reading diary as these are checked daily and we will assist your child to change their book.
Spellings will be given to children on Wednesdays, where possible, linking to their phonics work. Use our documents page to print resources to support their practise. We will do a spell check every Friday. The children will be practising spellings in school, but would greatly benefit from practise at home too. After all, practise makes permanent!
At East Wold we are aiming for children to learn and adopt the joined style of handwriting. Any practise with this would be greatly appreciated. Please log on to the Letter Join website for more information. https://www.letterjoin.co.uk/ Please see Mrs Murray in the office if you cannot remember the password.
We are looking forward to an exciting year ahead!
