Class Information

 Please note:

  • P.E. sessions will be held on Monday and Friday afternoons every week.
  • Please could children leave PE kits in school for a half term, this way they won’t have to remember it twice a week. The children will need outdoor P.E. clothes.
  • Forest Schools is on alternate Wednesdays. Children need to bring in warm Forest School kit.

Home Learning

Children all have a reading diary this year to help keep track of reading at home and homework tasks.  Any homework will be given out on Thursday and should usually be completed by the following Thursday.  

Homework set may vary depending on what is being studied in class and the needs of children.

  • Children should read at home regularly and make a note in their diary when they have read.  We appreciate parents' support in encouraging regular reading.
  • Spellings will be sent home weekly to learn (test on Fridays). Your support in helping children understand the spelling 'rule' or pattern and the meaning of the words is appreciated.  
  • Children should practise times tables facts to reach fluency.  They are able to practise on Timestable Rockstars.  If you would prefer paper copies, please let us know. 

   

If you would like to discuss anything with us, please do not hesitate to ring or drop in after school for a chat.
