What to wear and bring to school
All pupils should come to school in school uniform and with a school bag. Pupils should pack a water bottle and hat. Please make sure all personal items are labelled with your child’s name.
Termly timetable and homework
Your child will receive a timetable at the start of each term. This will also be sent out and put on the class web page. Homework will be primarily set via Google classroom each term – where possible submission should also be on Google classroom (unless something more tactile like a model/cooking etc). As with previous years the homework will be based on the 100 point challenge. If at any point you would like extra support work for your child please contact us and we can provide appropriate support.
Please find enclosed below the Year 3 & 4 statutory spelling lists as defined in the National Curriculum. This list is the set of words that children are expected to be able to spell by the end of Year 4.
It would be a great support to have these on display at home and to have fun testing one another on them and setting challenges to learn sets of them each week as part of home learning.
Also enclosed is the Year 5 & 6 list for those in need of the additional challenge!
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.
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.
