Key Information for This Term
Children should wear full uniform and black school shoes each day unless they have PE or Forest School, in which case, they should arrive wearing their kit. They will remain in their kit all day.
Children should not need to bring pencil cases, PE kits or other personal items to school. Children will be provided with their own stationery for use in school.
Children should bring a water bottle with their name marked on it.
School meals for children in Year 3 – 6 can be paid for via School Gateway as normal unless eligible for free school meals. There will be a choice of hot food and sandwiches each day for those children who order a school meal.
Staff will encourage hand hygiene and positive hygiene practices throughout the day.
Each week we expect children to complete a My Maths task, a short English task, read three times (record on Seesaw) and complete several games on TT Rockstars. Homework will be set every Friday. It needs to be completed by the following Friday.
Remember your My Maths passwords are the same as your TT rockstar passwords.
The children have completed a baseline test to identify which of the Year 3/4 common exception words they can currently spell. These have been highlighted on a word list in the front of their homework books. Each half term the children will identify which of the Year 3/4 common exception words they can't yet spell. They will then focus on learning these at home over the half term using their red spelling journal. There will be a half termly spelling test where we will update their spelling sheet to add new words they can now spell. In class, we will be focusing on learning the Year 4 spelling patterns. These will also be sent home each half term to be practised.
It is expected that they read at home a minimum of three times each week. Please let us know what your child is reading on Seesaw.
If your child is finding any part of the homework difficult, encourage them to use a dictionary or the internet for help. Alternatively, they can ask their Class Teacher who will be happy to help.
Useful Websites for Additional Learning
Children will have PE twice a week.
Year 2 – 6 children will have PE outdoors and therefore will need to wear their outdoor PE kit to school. They do not need to bring their school uniform to school. In warm weather, children can wear black/navy shorts and a plain white t-shirt. In cooler weather, children can wear grey/navy/black leggings/jogging or tracksuit bottoms, a warm top (preferably their school jumper) plus a waterproof coat (no football shirts or multi-coloured kits).
Year 4 children also have swimming lessons. A letter will be sent home to give details of when they start. Your child will require an appropriate swimming costume, a swimming cap and googles if needed, and a towel.
Children will have a series of Forest School sessions during the academic year. Your child will need suitable outdoor clothing such as a named waterproof coat, hat, gloves and wellington boots for these sessions. Children are to wear appropriate outdoor clothes to school plus their school jumper or cardigan for the whole day, bringing an additional pair of shoes to wear indoors. Please see timetable above.
