|Mr Byron & Miss Veuve
Can you please ensure your child comes in with a coat everyday. Sometimes it is raining a little and we still need to get outside and get some fresh air.
We will still be doing PE on Wednesday. Your child should come in in their PE kit and they will remain in it all day. In term 2, we will also be doing PE at Failand on Mondays. Your child will need to come to school in their PE kit. Make sure they come dressed for warmth as it can get quite cold up at Failand.
We will be using Spelling Shed again this year. A different spelling rule will be set each week with games and activities for the children to practise at home. Please encourage your child to use Spelling Shed each week as it is the best way to practise our spelling rule for the week.
We will continue to rote learn out times tables as the children started last year. We will work together as a class learning a couple of facts a week. We will do a timed test three times a week.
Times tables are a vital part of anyone's mathematical toolkit. Please help your child by regularly asking them about the times table facts that we are learning in class.
We will be doing whole class guided reading this year and looking at a lot of exciting texts. It is important that every child reads at home as well. Reading levels at primary school are a good indicator of future success in secondary school. Your child should try to read at least four times a week.
Home learning books
The children each brought home a home learning book to be used in the event of remote learning. Please keep this safe and do not use it for anything else! Your child's Seesaw login is stuck inside, and their Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars logins have been stuck to the front cover so you have all this information in one place.
Homework will be uploaded onto Seesaw once a week. We aim to upload it on Friday each week. It will usually be a short task practising a key skill or something we have learnt that week in class.
