P.E.

Dragonfly PE Days are Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on each of these days.

 

Homework


Reading

Reading homework is ongoing on a daily basis.  The homework tasks are taken home in the children's reading record and are to be completed in there. Dojos are awarded for the completion of homework. 


Spellings

Spelling words are sent home on a Monday and these words are tested on Friday.  The emphasis will be foremost on the spelling rule rather than the word itself so please do not worry if you believe a particular word to be too easy for your child.  If your child masters the spelling rule, this helps immensely with reading.


Times tables

Your child will bring home a times table sheet (every Friday).  The children will be tested on these the following Friday and once they achieve 50 correct answers, they will then progress on to the next sheet (getting progressively more tricky!). This is a timed challenge - 3 minutes and for many it will take time to be able to master this.  We urge you to practice with your child at home so that they can make progress.  The children also have a Times Table Rock stars account to use daily at home for practice. 


Class essentials


I do encourage all the children to bring in a bottle of water for drinking during lessons. They can fill this in the classroom and they are stored next to our sink.

Please ensure that your children have separate indoor and outdoor shoes.

I urge for all items of clothing to be labelled including PE kits.

Class web links

(Clicking on the image or logo below will take you to the relevant website)


We use a reward system in school called Class Dojo these are online creatures that your child can personalize, and if your child follows school rules and routines and strives to do their best, they will receive Dojos through the week. Again you will receive an invite and you can log on to ‘Class Dojo’, where you can see one of the ways we give positive feedback. 


We are also on Twitter, so watch out for our tweets! You can find us at @mcps_class4. We use twitter and the school website if we need to remind you of events such as home clothes days or if it is bad weather and the school has to shut. It’s worth logging on
