Children can come to school wearing their PE kits. If they have long hair, it is tied back, and earrings are taken out or covered on those days.

Home learning

Home learning is given out on Wednesday and is due to be returned back on Monday. Home learning is posted on Class dojo. 

Reading books will also be sent home weekly for you to read and talk about with your child. Please sign the link book and make a comment and make sure that the books are in your child's bag everyday.

Phonics Screening

In June, the children will take part in the National Phonics Screening. During the screening, the children will be asked to use their phonic knowledge to identify and use the phonemes they have been taught to read 40 real and alien (made up) words. Please see below some additional information about how we teach phonics at Earlsmead.
