P.E.

P.E. will take place on Tuesdays (with Miss Welch) and Mondays, so please ensure your child has the appropriate kit, that long hair can be tied back and earrings removed or covered with a plaster.  PE this term will be outdoors whenever possible so children must have a pair of trainers in their kit.

 


Homework


Reading

Reading homework is ongoing on a daily basis.  Your child knows which reading group they belong to and the homework tasks are outlined in the recent letter the children took home regarding our new reading system. Our books are changed once the guided reading tasks for the text are complete and key words can be read on sight.

 


Spellings

The children will also receive a list of spellings to learn at home each Friday, they will be tested on these spellings the following Friday, so again please try to practise these at home with your child on a regular basis.


Number Bond Challenge

Your child will bring home a number bond challenge (every Friday).  The children will be tested on these the following Friday and once they achieve  all 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 practise with your child at home so that they can make progress. 

 


Class essentials


We 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.

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 @mps_mallard  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.
