Each child has a home reading book and record. We have assessed and chosen the level of this book for your child in order to ensure this meets their reading needs. We will read this book with your child in class but it is also important that they are read with daily at home. This is part of their weekly homework. Your child will benefit from reading 4-5 pages and then talking about what they have read. They could discuss the characters, what they think will happen next or answer questions you ask them.
Every time your child reads at home, they earn a sticker on their reading chart which, when completed, will see them celebrated in our Celebration Assembly on a Monday as well as earn them a pokemon toy!
Please use the document below to help you ask your children questions as they read.
Weekly homework is:
- Spellings practise for 15 minutes 3 times a week.
- Times table and KIRF practise for 15 minutes 3 times a week.
- Daily reading
- Any spellings which you have struggled with the last week are to be practised in sentences the week after.
- An optional termly homework project linked to topics in class.
All children have been given a book for them to practise their mental maths and spellings in which will be checked weekly.
We do PE twice a week. On a Wednesday morning, we have indoor PE lessons and on a Tuesday afternoon we have outdoor PE lessons. Please be aware that where possible, outdoor PE lessons will take place and so your child will need to have a jumper and a warm, waterproof coat for this outdoor session.
Your child will need:
Indoor Kit: Children will need black or navy shorts, a white T-shirt and black pumps.
Outdoor Kit: Long black or blue jogging bottoms, a white PE T-shirt and a warm black or blue jumper to keep them warm in the winter months. Children will also need suitable trainers.
Their PE kit should be in school at all times.
