Class Teacher – Miss C Short

Teaching Assistants – Mr S Logan and Mrs B Davies

Expectations
Throughout the year the children will mature and develop their independence. They will be expected to complete all of their work to the best of their ability.

We have high expectations for behaviour and all children will be encouraged to follow the school and class rules at all times.

A range of rewards are in place to celebrate achievements and the children have a good understanding of these.

Children are all expected to take responsibility for their actions and to respect others at all times.

A consequence ladder is used to encourage the children to make positive choices at all times.

Punctuality and Attendance
The children need to arrive promptly at 8:50am to give them enough time to complete their morning challenge. All parents are welcome to support their child with the activity. Key Stage 2 children finish school at 3:10pm.

PE Kit
This must be labelled and hair fastened back, no jewellery, white t-shirt, shorts, tracksuit bottoms, trainers for outdoor games.

The children will need their PE kit to be in school for our PE lessons on Monday and Wednesday.  If your child is chosen to do football as part of Golden Time they will need there kit on a Friday.

Our topic for the year – These will be shown on the schools website so keep checking for new entries.  Our first topic is based around the history of fairgrounds and we will also study how forces relate to fairground rides.

Literacy and Numeracy Targets
These will be set as and when your children achieve their previous targets and your children will know where to find these.  Writing targets will be clear and your child should be able to say what they need to do to improve their own work.

Handwriting
A sheet will be given modelling how all letters should be joined. All children will be encouraged to join their handwriting. (Any additional practise at home would be greatly appreciated).

Homework
This will be set every Thursday and should be returned within the week.  If this is not returned your child will be asked to complete this work in school as it is an important part of your child’s learning.

Spellings
Spelling will be sent home on a Thursday and will be tested the following week.

Reading
Children are expected to read at least 3 times per week. This reading should be recorded in the child’s diary to ensure that they earn rewards at the end of each half term.

Reading diaries need to be shown to the class teacher or teaching assistants at least once a week.

Finally, if you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to me before or after school.Thank you for your support,

Miss Short
