Happy New Year - Term 3

 

The busy festive period is over and we are a third of the way through the school year already!

 

The children have now had 2 terms to settle in to Key Stage 2 and now fully understand the standards and expectations required of them. It has been wonderful to see them grow and start to take responsibility for themselves and their learning. 

 

Although the weather has been quite mild it is still quite chilly. Please make sure coats are sent in with children so we can still get out and enjoy some fresh air at break and lunch times.

 

Please also make sure tracksuits / warm clothing is sent in for PE, unless the weather is extremely poor, we will still be venturing out. PE kit should be in school all week so that we can potentially move lessons around if we do have poor weather.

 

The class timetable, term overview and 100 point project details are available below.

 

If you have any queries or questions, please contact the office or approach me at the end of the school day.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Kind regards

 

Mr Jenkins

 

 

Home Learning

Home Learning is set on a termly basis to continue work linked to school, providing children with the opportunity to revise certain areas of learning and to encourage them to take their learning further.

 

This year we are using 100 Point Projects to allow children to develop the time management skills that are so important in daily life. Each term a set of challenges will be set, linked to our topic. Each of these challenges will be worth a set amount of points. Children need to complete enough tasks to collect a minimum of 100 points. Work should not be sent in each week. Final projects should be brought in during the final week of each term for us to share as a class and also with parents on our open afternoons. 

 

In addition to this, we will be using MyMaths to offer children the chance to revisit, revise, refresh and extend their understanding - each child should have a log in - if not, please ask and a replacement will be provided. If you do not have internet access at home, I am happy for children to have lunch in the classroom once a week and use the school equipment to access this learning platform. Please let me know if this is needed so I can plan which day.

 

Reading

Reading holds the key to learning in almost every other subject and learning opportunity - it is difficult to access a History topic without developing reading skills as an example.

 

We expect each child to read beyond school hours.We suggest 5 separate occasions each week. We suggest each night from Monday to Thursday and then an additional session between Friday and Sunday - they may read more of course! This should be a mix of independent reading and reading aloud to someone. It should be recorded in their reading record each time they read outside of school. It is no coincidence those that read regularly see the biggest improvements in writing also.

 

Each child has a reading diary to record their reading experiences and these are being checked on a weekly basis.

 

PE Kits:

Please ensure that your child has the appropriate PE kit in school, Monday to Friday.

As part of our drive to be active learners, being active is a vital step to promoting learning skills, team building and effective listening skills. It is imperative that your child has the appropriate kit in school as we may have to re-schedule an outdoor session if weather is unfavourable.
