We use class dojo as a way of communicating with parents. You may also get any relevant updates on here too.
Our topic for this term is: Traders and Invaders
PE is scheduled each Monday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor). Please read this term's newsletter for more details about what to bring to school. We ask that all items of clothing brought into school are clearly named.
Maths - Homework is set on Maths Flex on Friday and is to be completed and submitted by the following Wednesday.
There will be six pieces of optional homework suggested every half term. These will directly link to our school values and will support your child’s learning in different subjects within the curriculum. Tasks can be completed at any point in the half term and completed work will be celebrated in school. Please note, these tasks are completely optional but have been planned to provide a broad range of activities that the children will enjoy.
Reading Scrapbook - Each week, one child will be selected to complete the reading scrapbook. Please return this to school by the following Wednesday so that it can be shared with the rest of the class.
Spellings - These should be practised at least twice in the Spelling homework book and submitted by hand each Wednesday. Ideas on how to learn these words will be provided in the front of the spelling books. Children should spend about 20 minutes per week on these spelling tasks. Spellings will be tested each Friday.
Reading - Children are expected to read at home on a regular basis. We still believe it is a positive and beneficial exercise for children to read aloud, so please encourage them to read with parents/grandparents/older siblings when possible.
