Spring Term Notices

 

Owls Class timetable for this term is stored above.  It highlights the general plan for the next half term, however this is flexible and can sometimes change if special events arise.

 

PE will be on Tuesday afternoon and will be focusing on Gymnastics.  Please ensure that your children have their PE kits in school all the time and that all their clothing is named. 

 

Keyrings, Please can we ask that your child only has one key ring on their bag for identification purposes. With too many key rings on their bags the children find it hard to fit all their bags in their individual tray.

 

Many thanks

Mrs Rutherford, Mrs Bradford

 

 

Show and Tell

Show and Tell will be "What's in the bag".  Children will be chosen at random.   They will choose a bag, take it home, place something inside and bring it back the following Friday.  They will then be asked questions by their peers as they try to guess what is in the bag!

 

Mathletics club

Held on a Thursday after school for 30 minutes. 

  • As this club is very popular we have to restrict the number of children who attend to 15, 5 per key stage 1 class. 
  • A sign up sheet will be placed on the classroom doors on a Monday morning for that week.  If your child attends breakfast and you are not their on Monday mornings but would like your child to attend mathletics please email via the office.  
  • We hope that all children will have the opportunity to attend this club at some point throughout the term.

 

 

 

 

 

HOMEWORK

Topic

Please look at the topic homework posted above and help you child produce a piece on our topic of Castles to bring in at some point this term to share with their class.

 

Weekly/ Daily homework

  • Reading, daily reading really has a huge impact.  Reading a few pages and then discussing these is the most important strategy to ensure your child has understood what they have read.

 

  • Spellings, The children will be given a set of weekly spellings, this term they will be focussing on the sight words your children need to know.  Each week when I test the children we also cover a random selection of spellings from the previous weeks covered.  This informs me of whether the children are retaining their spellings and whether they should be able to apply this skill when they write. (Strategies, look, cover, write, check.  Sounding out can be useful but only as a last resort.  Please encourage your child to look carefully at the words once they have written it and think to themselves does that look right?

 

  • Mathletics, the website is always available for children to practise their skills.  Each week I will state the topic of maths that we will be focussing on for your child to log on and practise.
