Sleep Routines & Our Performance

Healthy Sleep 
How much sleep is your child getting? We are noticing that many children are tired during learning time. Did you know that 5-7 year old need 10-11 hours sleep per night?  The holidays are a perfect time to get sleep routines in order! For more information and strategies to help your child get a good night's sleep, see this info from Canterbury Health.

There is also a free sleep app developed by the London-based Children's Sleep Department to help you understand your child's sleep.

Singing: we will be singing our team song at this week's Celebration Assembly on 5th July at 11am.

Thank you: to our wonderful parent helpers in reading, and for all those who put away reading books. We really appreciate your support. Thank-you!

Term 2 Week 8 Newsletter

Reading at Home
Thank you for supporting your child by maintaining regular reading at home. Each day your child needs to self-select a book and put it into their reading folder. If you are concerned about your child's reading or you would like any ideas about supporting your child to read at home do not hesitate to speak with your child's teacher.

Slippers/Warm Socks/Winter Clothing/Glasses
The days are getting much cooler and it's really good to see students dressed appropriately for the weather. Please do remember to name your child's jackets as these inevitably come off when they enter our lovely warm hub. If your child would like to wear slippers or thick socks, do name these too.
We have an increasing number of students who wear glasses and we know it's so important that they develop the routine and discipline of managing this by themselves. If your child is suppose to wear glasses for specific learning tasks - reading, for example, please let us know.

Learning Conferences
Kind thanks to you all for taking the time to meet with us last week for learning conferences. These are such valuable meetings to celebrate with your child all their progress and to identify next steps.

Disco and Swimming Photos....enjoy!
