Expectations

Throughout the year the children will mature and develop their independence. They will be expected to complete all of their work the best that they can. They will be encouraged to follow the school and class rules at all times. A range of rewards are in place to celebrate achievements which the children know.

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

Punctuality and Attendance

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

PE Kit

Please make sure your child has a white t-shirt, shorts, tracksuit bottoms and trainers for outdoor games. If your child’s ears are pierced they need to take them out or bring plasters to cover them during PE.

The children will need their PE kit to be in school for our PE lessons on Tuesday and Thursday.  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 – We will send out a leaflet each term to let you know what your child will be learning about so you can support them at home. Also these will be shown on the schools website so keep checking for new entries.

Literacy and Numeracy Targets

These will be set regularly and they will be stuck inside literacy and numeracy books. Your child should be able to say what their target is and what they need to do to improve their own work.

Handwriting

Children will practise their handwriting daily. They will be given a handwriting pen when they can form all their letters correctly and join them neatly.

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 do this in school as it is an important part of your child’s learning.

Spellings

The children will have a weekly spelling lesson on a Friday. Words will be sent home for them to learn which the will need to practise for the following week. We would really appreciate any support you can give your child to help them learn to spell their words correctly each week.

Reading

Children should be reading 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.

We need to see reading diaries at least once a week.There are some handy hints for parents in the front of the diaries and examples of questions which you could ask your child to check their understanding of the book read.

Finally, if you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to speak to us before or after school

Thank you for your support,

Mrs Black & Mrs Malin.
