No jewellery is permitted in school, except for watches (no smart watches please).
Earrings are not permitted- if your child has recently had their ears pierced, they are required to be covered with plasters before coming to school.
Long hair must be tied back.
Reading is a key priority for all children at OLSA this year. As such, it is vital that your child reads for at least 20 minutes per day and logs this in their reading diary. This should be a combination of reading to themselves and reading aloud to others.
It is expected that children will be completing Accelerated Reader quizzes regularly, this is monitored and children choose their own books based on their reading zone.
Homework and Spellings
This year, we are moving to using an online homework platform called Century Tech. Each week, children will be expected to complete at least 3 maths nuggets from their personalised Century dashboard- the link for this is at the bottom of the class page. Your child has received their login details at the start of term, which will be stored in their reading journal.
*Spelling lists will no longer be given as homework, all spelling will be completed during school hours.
