General Class Information

Personal Reading Books
The children should each have an ongoing book which they bring into school every day. Their books can be from home or chosen from either our class or library collections and we suggest they try to read a variety of authors and genres over the course of the year. Our regular "I recommend..." sessions and book swaps are great opportunities for them to  hear about the books others have loved reading too.
Please don’t forget to sign your child’s home/school book whenever they read at home. Thanks! 


Class Reader
We're still enjoying 'Fish in a Tree' by Lynda Mullaly Hunt and next it's 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' by Onjali Q. Rauf. Two great books!


Homework
From Term 3 Y5 will continue to be set either Maths or Literacy/Topic homework each week but Y6 will now have both. Have a look at the Term 4 Homework Timetable for all the details. 


PE
PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays so the children will need to always have their kit in school ready. Please ensure your child has suitable outdoor PE kit (named) as they will be outside as much as possible for these sessions. A change of socks in their kit bag is a particularly useful addition too! Thank you.


Spellings/Tables
Spellings will be sent out on Monday and will be tested on Friday. Please ensure your child practises these - and their tables - regularly at home. Thank you.


Healthy Snacks

Please continue to make sure all snacks/lunch boxes are healthy. The school Tuck Shop is also open during break on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

 

A quick reminder that Ms McGuinness teaches Badgers on Mon and Tues, Mrs Howell teaches them on Thurs and Fri and we alternate the Wednesdays. Thank you all, again, for your continued support in your child’s learning. Please do not hesitate to come and speak with us after school if you have any concerns or questions. We can also be contacted via the school office and, of course, the Home/School books are a good way to get information to us, too.
