Our Spring topic this term is:
Dragonfly PE Days are Monday and Friday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on each of these days.
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.
Spelling words are sent home on a Friday and these words are tested the following 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.
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 - 4 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.
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.
