Class RH 2017 - 2018

Mrs Hughes, Mrs Beeston and Miss Brennand

Welcome to RH

  • As Autumn is drawing in, children will need a warm coat, wellies and a change of clothes. Scarves, hats and gloves are also recommended (please ensure everything is named)

  • Children need a labelled water bottle with a sports cap.

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

  • Snack money is a voluntary contribution of £11 to cover next half term (payable on School Gateway).



  • Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and note this in the blue reading diary.

  • Read the book to your child befroe 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.

  • Don't panic if your child memorises a book - this is a fundamental part of beginning to read.

  • See your bookmark for example questions you can ask your child.


  • 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.

This half term our topics are:

  • Winnie the Witch including Halloween and Bonfire night

  • Autumn - including Julia Donalson's popular book The Gruffalo

  • Christmas - including The Gruffalo's Child also by Julia Donaldson

  • We will practice blending and segmenting consonant-vowel-consonant words e.g. c-a-t

  • We shall look at concepts of more and less/fewer in maths
