Welcome to Kites' class page! In the Autumn term, we travelled back in time to explore the myth and the madness of the ancient Greeks. This term, our quest will take us to the dark, emptiness of space and the baron, Texan wastelands.
We travel forward a few thousand years to our new Quest...
SPRING TERM QUEST OVERVIEW: A Hole New World
AUTUMN TERM QUEST OVERVIEW: GROOVY GREEKS
This is our completed quest wall. We really enjoyed our Groovy Greeks topic, and we're super excited to move onto our new quest.

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 Tuesday and Wednesday 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.
Homework is given out every Friday and is to be returned by the following Thursday. All homework will be posted on teams, and unless otherwise stated, returned via Teams as well.
The children are given a list of words at the beginning of each term. They are taught the spelling rule at the beginning of one week and then the test is usually carried out on the following Friday. So spelling tests will take place every two weeks. Spelling List is attached below.
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. More information on how TT-Rockstars works can be found on the Eagle's useful resources page. On a Friday 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. 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.
