A massive welcome back to the youngest juniors in our school!
Mrs Dewsnap, Miss Russell and myself are so thrilled with how everybody has started the new school year! We have many exciting and new pieces of learning planned. Furthermore, this half term, we'll be learning all about The Stone Age.
If you'd like to know a little more about what we'll be learning, please read the attached plans.
If you'd like to help your children's learning at home, below is a variety of things you could do for around 15 minutes each night. If there is anything specific you would like to know, please come and see us.
Reading - listen to your child read as much as possible, some children need the encouragement of reading to somebody. If your child would rather read to themselves on their own then this is just as good, you could always talk to them about what they have read later.
Maths Rockstars - continue to run. These will help your children with their maths’ responses being quick and confident, we will also be focussing on these essentials in lessons but a little extra each night is often the difference.
Key spellings will be placed inside your child's learning log (the whole set) and their reading record (half termly). These are the statutory spellings for the National Curriculum. Key spellings that your child needs to learn (from their writing) will be brought home as well.
Spelling Shed in being set up by school and we hope to have this up and running for use at home by half term.
Finally, PE days are on Mondays and Fridays, so can you please make sure that your children have appropriate PE kit in school on these days. Whenever possible, we will go outside. Please make sure your children have a white shirt, black shorts and trainers, however, they can bring extra layers to keep warm
