Friday

This year, there will be a focus on reading comprehension. Children have been given their reading books and reading records. We ask that children read daily with an adult and that the adult signs or comments in the reading records afterwards. Please ensure when you hear your child read, you ask them questions based on the pages they have read to help them gain a better understanding. Your child’s book will be changed once they have shown a clear understanding of their current reading book.

Your child will receive a yellow Home Learning book. In their books, they will have a list of weekly spellings to learn by Friday. They will also have maths activities along with the first 100 high frequency words. In addition, there will a set of topic related activities for your child to complete fortnightly. Please note a list of required dates for an activity to be handed in will be provided.

In Year 2, children will have Spanish lessons every Monday afternoon. Mr Dorado will teach the children a range of Spanish phrases and songs. Singing Assembly will take place on Friday mornings. Your child will take part in PE every Friday afternoon. Please ensure they have suitable PE kit i.e black joggers, white t-shirt, black pumps/trainers.

It is very important that your child attends school every day. Our school target is to have above 96% attendance across the school. Each week, the class that has the highest attendance will get a reward. In addition, please make sure you are punctual for drop off and home time.

Please make sure your children are wearing black school shoes. We have noticed that some children have been wearing trainers. This is not uniform and you will receive a letter home if they continue.

  • Uniform – Please adhere to the High View Uniform code. Monogramed items (jumpers, cardigans and book bags) can be obtained online from www.mapac.com or telephone 01923 255 525. Other standard uniform items can be sourced locally.

  • Class Trips – We will no longer be accepting cash or cheques for trips and payment will only be possible using our SIMS Agora online payment system. Your child has a unique payment number which you may have already used to set up online payments for school lunches and after school care. If you have not set up your account, please notify the school office and you will be provided with your child's unique number. If trips do not require payment, you will still need to go online to give permission for your child to attend.

  • School dinners – If a child wishes to change from school dinners to packed lunch or vice versa, they may only do so at the beginning of each half term.  Payment should be made online using SIMS Agora. Details can be obtained from the school office.  If any child has been advised by their GP or Health Care Professional to either, follow a special diet; or to avoid certain foods, please contact Edwards and Ward Special Diet and Allergen help line on the details below:
