Below are a few things that hopefully you will find useful. If you have any questions, then please contact us via the school office email address.
PE days are on Wednesday and Thursday this term. Please ensure that if your child cannot remove their earrings due to healing or soreness, that they are taped up before they come to school. Wednesday's this term will be swimming on the afternoon, in which children can wear their PE kit. They will need to bring a swimming hat with them.
Homework is given out every Wednesday and is to be returned by the following Tuesday. All homework will be posted on teams or MyMaths, and unless otherwise stated, returned via Teams/MyMaths as well.
The children are given a list of words at the beginning of each term, and are given out fortnightly. The spellings are given on a Friday, the children have a week to practice the spellings, and the test will take place on the following Friday.
The children all have access to TT-Rockstars, which they are encouraged to use to help them improve their speed at answering multiplication and division questions. Occasionally they will have time in school to use TT-Rockstars. Most children are on the automatic training mode, which works through the timetables in a set order. On a Thursday the children take part in a Club 99 challenge, they are given their tests so they can share with you how they have done.
Club 99 is a set of challenges that get increasingly more difficult. The children are given 8 minutes to complete the questions.
The children are expected to read at least 4 times a week and we would like a parent to sign to say they have heard their child read. At the front of the books there are questions that they should use to help them with the comment. The books will be checked weekly. We will be keeping a record of how many reads a child has done and they will receive a reward each time they complete 25, and a grand prize at the end of the term for 100 reads. We are putting a large emphasis on reading for pleasure this year, so any bit of reading your child does is wonderful. For birthday celebrations, as opposed to chocolates or sweets, your child may instead donate a copy of their favorite reading book as a gift to the class which will be added to our class library.
