Reading this book will help the children think and write from different character perspectives; write a news report and a balanced argument. Whilst reading, the children will be encouraged to look carefully for clues in the text; challenge each other’s opinions and develop their own vocabulary.
Each week we will be asking children to complete a range of pieces of homework which will cover maths, English, reading and topic. We ask that when reading, whether your child reads independently or to someone else, you sign their reading records. This shows us that the children are completing their learning and indicates to us who might need more support or encouragement to read in school. Completed homework will need to be handed in on Monday mornings and will be rewarded with team points!
In term 1, our PE days are on Monday (Netball) and Wednesday (Gymnastics). Everyone must wear a school PE kit and suitable trainers. Children will need to bring their PE kits into school ready for the first Monday (6th September) back. Your child may take their kit home to wash each week, or keep it in school on their peg until the end of term. We recognise that during Covid, the children came to school in their PE kits, however we have decided as a school the children need to change in school this year. For privacy reasons, we will be separating boys and girls using both classrooms, whilst they are changing for PE.
Later on in the term we will be announcing head and deputy head boys and girls as well as casting votes across the school for any child who would like to be a sports team captain. If your child would like to put their name forwards for the sports team captain roles, they can let their class teacher know.
Finally, we will continue to use Class Dojo to communicate with parents and to provide any necessary updates with the classes. As well as update the school website on the class pages.
