Class 3 information
Welcome back! Can’t wait to have a whole term of teaching, fun and laughter this summer term 1.
Teachers: Mrs Payne (Monday & Tuesday)
Miss Cross (Wednesday, Thursday & Friday)
Teaching Assistants: Ms Solana and Miss Brain we are also very fortunate that we have Mrs Mitchell working in the class on Tuesdays and Wednesdays!
Homework will be sent home on a Monday and will be due in the following Monday. The homework will be based on work that is relevant to support our learning that recaps and consolidates work already covered. It is important to encourage your child to complete the homework as independently as possible however some work will require working together. NEW * If the homework is not stuck in ready for them please could you try and stick it in or remind them to do it in school before they hand it in, there is always plenty of time!
Please refer to the knowledge organiser for the term that will be in the homework book for key information and vocabulary that will help you support your child’s learning. NEW * It also has the key text for the term for you to refer back to!
Please can I remind you to send your child’s book bag in with them every day. This will allow us to change their books, send home letters and prevent them from losing things from the classroom to home. NEW * No rucksacks as we don’t have the space to store them.
Please can you provide your child with a water bottle at the start of the year. It will need to be named. Water bottles will be sent home at the end of each day to be washed thoroughly. Only water should be provided. We will fill the bottles with fresh water as and when required.
Please ensure that your child wears their PE kit to school. PE is on a NEW * Tuesday and a Thursday. When the weather is colder you may wish to send your child with joggers over their shorts, as they might get cold throughout the day. Please make sure that the kit you send your child to school in is sensible and as plain as possible.
Please ensure that your child continues to read throughout the week. We will send one book home per week during this time which will then be brought back to school and a new one will be provided. It is good that children re-read the book, pick out key words, talk through some trickier words, what do they mean? Discuss the plot, characters, feelings etc. If you feel they have exhausted the book use something from your child’s book shelf including magazines and leaflets!
Please put a comment every time your child reads (including the page they have got to) so that we can support them, and we can change their book. As your child is now reading longer books it is not required to read the whole book at once. We recommend 10 minutes each night.
Now that the children are juniors they are no longer provided with a piece of fruit at playtimes. We recommend that you send your child with a piece of fruit each day.
