What about homework?

There will usually be 3 pieces per week and you will have one week to complete it. It will normally be times tables, Spellings and either an English or Maths based piece, depending on what we have covered that week. Creative pieces will be set in place of the 3 pieces and an appropriate time slot given to complete. Homework is due in each Friday - I will let you know in plenty of time if this day changes. We mark homework in class each Friday morning and discuss misconceptions in groups, supported by Mrs. Peach. Spellings are personalized and tailored for each child, tested on Friday's, and the new spellings for the following week are written in the 'Spelling list' area of the school diary.

 

What else do I need to know?

  • We are supported in class by Mrs. Peach.
  • Water bottles are welcomed and can be kept at the back of the classroom in the dedicated area.
  • Home/School communication - Any notes/letters for me can be written into the school diary. It is your child's responsibility to show these to me. Anything of urgent importance should always be communicated to the office as soon as possible.
  • PE is every Thursday for the whole afternoon.
  • Hygiene - roll-on deodorant is encouraged, as is the taking off of hoodies! (I would ask that no aerosol cans be bought to school due to these being a risk to setting off fire alarms and to people with respiratory issues). 
  • Extra clothing if children are doing multiple sporting activities each day - If children want to bring in additional clothes if they are doing more than one club a day then this is fine.
