Helping your child with their learning...
To help your child with their learning we have created a handy guide. Please click on the link below to access this.
This half term most of our school boosters will take place after school between 3:15-4pm (please check the permission letters, which you signed and returned, for dates and times).
In the afternoons, Miss Key and Miss Anderson will work with children for boosters in Reading, Writing, SPAG, Phonics and Maths. Children also have the opportunity to access extra support during assembly times. Groups will be reviewed each half term.
Please can we stress the importance of the ALL the homework we ask your child to complete.
1. All children should read daily. Even if your child is a confident reader, they should be reading independently to encourage a love of books and a greater understanding of the written word. Children should record their FAB4 reading in their Home-School Diary. There are four spaces in the book for each week. The Home-School diaries will be collected in every FRIDAY. If your child's diary has been completed, and signed by an adult, they will receive a stamp in the back of their book which goes towards your child's FAB4 reading reward.
2. All children will receive weekly spellings. These will be set on a Thursday and tested on a Thursday.
3. Each Wednesday children receive a piece of Numeracy or Literacy homework. This is due in on the following Tuesday.
4. Times tables will be tested each week. Please support your children and practice with them.
Physical Education (PE)
Owls and Orangutans will be doing PE on Tuesdays and swimming on a Thursday. At all times your child will need an indoor and outdoor PE kit in school.
Indoor PE kit is a white T-shirt, dark shorts (black or navy blue) and trainers or plimsolls.
Outdoor PE kit is a white T-shirt, dark jogging bottoms (black or navy blue), dark sweatshirt and trainers. Jewellery must not be worn on PE days.
If your child can not take part in PE for medical reasons a letter should be sent to the class teacher.
