Routines

School is open from 8.45 and parents are welcome to come to the classroom and see what we are working on. At 9.00 school starts and parents need to leave so we can start our school day.

PE is on Tuesday and Wednesday, so please ensure your child has a full PE kit on those days. (Please see the website for details).

Earrings cannot be worn for PE and shoulder-length hair needs to be tied back.

 

Homework

Reading – this is the most valuable task that your child can spend time on. Please find time to regularly share a book and discuss what they are reading. The children are responsible for telling us when they need their books changing; they then choose their next book within their level of the reading scheme.

Maths – your child has already been given their mental arithmetic workbook. Each week, 1 page of work should be completed, which is made up of 3 parts. It should be handed in each Wednesday and it will be returned on Friday. If your child is concerned about any that are tricky, please ask at any time or just have a go!

Times Tables – the expectation is that all tables up to 12x12 should be known confidently. Any home practice will be valuable!

Spelling – although spellings will be given each week, this is not for a formal test. These are the spellings that they will be using in a wider context each week.

Project – each half-term, your child will have 6 tasks to complete from a selection. This will follow on and support work done in class. Project work needs to be handed in the Monday after the holiday.

PLEASE MAKE SURE READING BOOKS, DIARY, MATHS WORKBOOK AND PROJECT BOOK ARE KEPT IN BOOK BAGS AND BROUGHT INTO SCHOOL EACH DAY.
