OUR LEARNING JOURNEY YEAR 2023-24
Please download our termly curriculum documents here for more information about what we will are learning and to see examples of our work.
Reading books will be changed on a Tuesday and Friday with the expectation that the book is read 3 times before it is changed to develop stamina, fluency and understanding of what has been read.
Their progress and understanding will be greatly improved if you hear them read for 10 minutes each day and discuss what they have read with them.
The children need PE kits on Mondays and Thursdays.
Indoor PE on Tuesday
Outdoor PE on Wednesday
Forest School on Thursday
The children will be given homework each week on a Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. The homework will usually consist of Maths, English, Spellings and Times Tables. Occasionally the children may be asked to find out information for a Science or History topic. It is very important that children complete homework tasks and please try to develop their independence with this. If your child finds any particular task really challenging and you have had to give a lot of assistance, please send a message on DOJO and we will be happy to support.
We are currently providing the children with a daily snack which consists of a piece of fruit. Children can also bring money in to purchase rice cakes and bread sticks.
From the start, we encourage all children to be responsible for securing their own belongings in their locker as it fosters their independence. We are sure you will help us in this by encouraging the children to become more independent and responsible.
Class Dojo is an important way for teachers to encourage students and contact parents about their child's progress in class. It can be used online or downloaded as an app on iOS and Android devices. Please ask if you require a copy of your log in.
If you have any queries, please don't hesitate to ask or send a message on Dojo.
