Squirrel Class Information

Class information

P.E. Days - Tuesday and Wednesday

Please ensure the children have their PE kits on when they come to school on that day. As the weather becomes colder the children will need to have warmer clothes including sweatshirts and joggers.

Reading books

As the children arrive in the morning they are asked to get out their reading records. We will then check these to see if your child needs to change their book. Please write where you have read to in the reading record and also if they have finished their book.

Most of the children will bring home 2 reading books, one will be to help them improve their sound recognition and blending and the other will support their fluency.

Children who read at least 3 times a week at home, will receive a reading bug each half term.



Because the children may be using the internet at home, we thought we would share the keeping safe on line rules.

Staying Safe Online

  • Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.
  • Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. Once you’ve put a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.
  • Keep your privacy settings as high as possible
  • Never give out your passwords
  • Don’t befriend people you don’t know
  • Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online. Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do
  • Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are
  • Think carefully about what you say before you post something online
  • Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude
  • If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
