Important things to remember:
We have P.E. every week. Our P.E. day is a Monday. Pupils need to wear their P.E. kit to school on this day. Blue or white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers. If pupils forget their kit, there is spare available in school to ensure they participate.
We are often asked how parents can help their children at home. Here are some ideas for you:
* Pupils will have a homework menu each half term, with activities linked to their project work. They can complete them as little or often as they like but should aim to complete all the tasks by the end of the half term.
* Basic addition and multiplication skills are at the heart of most of our maths work. Helping your child practise these skills will really help them to progress. There are many websites with worksheets you can print or games you can load. We suggest that 5 minutes a day on the Hit the Button website will have a positive impact on your child's learning. If they have mastered Hit the Answer on a particular times table, move on to the Hit the Question. After that, have a go at division facts.
* Reading- Your child will be bringing home a reading book to read with an adult. They will also have a reading record with question prompts for you to ask to discuss the text and ideas for activities your child can complete to show their understanding.
* Active learn- Your child has an online account with their reading books (as well as some maths games). They need to read the books and answer the questions. This helps us to assess their comprehension skills, which are as important as their ability to read fluently. Listening to your child read means that you can pick up on their mistakes. Reading TO your child helps them to understand what good, fluent reading with expression sounds like.
