We are all here to help you with any questions or problems you may have so please do not hesitate to ask. We realise that it has been a strange several months for everybody and your happiness at school is very important to us.
Some useful class information:
Your child will not need to bring anything other than a water bottle, reading book and packed lunch (if they are not having a school dinner) to school, as all other equipment will be provided. We will expect packed lunch boxes to be kept in their school bags.
Your child will have a reading book and diary sent home with them. These should be brought into school each day as they will be read with throughout the week. Please encourage your child to read at home. Little and often really is the best option with 5-10 minutes every day being a great starting point.
These will be sent home in a blue spelling book. The spellings are matched to your child's current phonics group and will be tested and changed every Thursday. Please make sure their spelling book is in school on a Thursday morning.
Homework will be sent home in a pink homework book every three weeks, at the start of each new unit. It will be provided on a home learning grid, similar to the ones used during lock down. These will be stuck in the children's homework books and uploaded onto Seesaw and the school website. It will consist of a variety of tasks across the curriculum and will include compulsory and optional tasks. Some tasks can be completed in the homework books whilst other completed work may be photographed and put on Seesaw. Please help us by encouraging your children to complete their homework.
The first learning grid will be sent home on Monday 28th September, but reading books, spellings and Learn-its sheets will come home before that.
Times Tables and Number Facts
These are tested weekly on a Friday, through Big Maths Beat That. It is essential that they practice these number facts regularly. Your child's Beat That sheet will be sent home for them to practice for the the following week. The more confident children are with their number facts and times tables - the easier other aspects of maths will be.
The children will be taking part in two PE sessions a week (currently Thursday and Friday). Therefore PE kit should be worn to school on those days. PE kit consists of white T-shirt and white or black shorts, black tracksuits or black leggings can be worn during cold weather, and trainers should be easy to run in.
As we will not be able to run information meetings this year, please read the PowerPoint that we have provided at the bottom of the class page. We will also use the Seesaw app, and when last year's pages are archived we will be in touch with new logon details for this year.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact us via a note with your child, a message on Seesaw, phone call to the school or popping into the school office. We look forward to working with you on your child's education this year.
