Class Information

Homework

The children will be given homework tasks each Friday. The homework will be used to consolidate the children’s knowledge of what has been covered in class and will usually consist of: a Maths task, an English task, a weekly spelling list and times table practice. There may also be tasks asking the children to find out information for a topic. It is very important that the children complete these homework tasks to the best of their ability. If they are having difficulty, please ask them to inform me and I will be happy to explain it again. The homework is due in on the following Friday. If homework is not completed there is the consequence of missing break times the following day until it is completed.

 

PE

Tuesday: Indoor

Thursday: Outdoor

Please could the children have a PE kit in school all week as there are times when the timetable changes and our PE lessons move to another day. We will be having indoor PE sessions on a Tuesday afternoon and outdoor PE sessions Thursday afternoons. If a PE kit has not been brought in, there is the consequence of missing break times.

The P.E Kit should include black shorts and joggers, white t-shirt and pumps/trainers. Please note that jewellery, other than small ear studs, should not be worn to school and to prevent injury all earrings should be removed for P.E. Children with long hair will need a hair tie for P.E. If an incorrect PE kit has been brought in, a kit warning will be issued. Two consecutive kit warnings will result in a consequence.

The children are encouraged to keep a roll on deodorant in their locker so that they can apply it when needed. 

 

Forest School

We will be taking part in forest school sessions every Wednesday.

Children are to come into school in their Forest School kit on the day they are doing Forest along with their school black trainers in a bag to change into. Can you please make sure that your child is wearing a long sleeved top and pants that cover the whole of their legs. For footwear children can wear wellies or an old pair of trainers. Please remember that children must wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty.

 

Class Dojo

Class Dojo is a way for teachers to encourage pupils and contact parents about their child's progress in class. It can be used online or downloaded as an app on iOS/Android. (Please ask if you require a copy of your log in). We will be using this in class alongside our Good to be Green system. We will discuss the ways in which points are gained or lost during PSHE times to ensure that it fits in with our behaviour policy. Children can access at home to personalise their avatars.

 

Reading

We will hear the children read as often as possible each week, however this isn’t always possible with such a busy timetable in Year 6. Any help from home with the children’s reading towards greater intonation and fluency within would be appreciated. It is the children's responsibility to complete the reading journal on BOOM Read. However, feel free to add comments.

Please note: We do not have a designated "Changing Book Day". The children can change their school reading book once an adult has checked their reading record, which must show that the book has been completed.

Children will be provided with a reading book and a school library book. It is very important that the children have their reading book and library book in school every day. If they fail to do so, a book warning will be issued. Two consecutive book warnings will result in a consequence.
