Welcome to RH

  • As the weather is so changeable please can you ensure that your child brings a coat and a change of clothes (including named wellies).

  • Children need a labelled water bottle to bring to school each day.

  • P.E. kits need to be in school Monday-Friday (black shorts, a white 'Leighton Academy' t-shirt and trainers). We will be having P.E.on a Wednesday morning this term.

  • Snack money is a voluntary contribution of £9.50 to cover next half term (payable on Arbor).

  • Homework


  • Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and note this in the blue reading diary.Please sign your child's reading diary so that we know they have read at home.

  • When your child has read 10 times at home they will receive a certificate.

  • In class, we have a 'Home Reading Challenge' where your child will partcipate in 'climbing' up the beanstalk every time they have read 10 times at home. When they reach the castle (after 50 reads), they will receive a special prize!

  • Read the book to your child before they read it to you so that it is familiar to them.

  • Allow your child to look at the pictures as they read.

  • Encourage your child to point to each word as they say it.

  • Read each book more than once.

  • Mathletics

  • Children should complete one Mathletics certificate per week (1000 points).

  • Children will show their certificates in a fortnightly achievement assembly.

  • Initially you will want to help your child with their Mathletics but we encourage independence once your child if familiar with the activity.

  • Your child's teacher will assign them a weekly task which may be repeated to allow opportunities to build independence.
