PE - Children take part in one whole-afternoon PE session per week on a Wednesday . Please can you ensure your child has the correct PE uniform in school all week (white top, dark shorts and jogging bottoms) as sessions may be changed due to weather conditions. During the colder months, it is advisable for your child to have a pair of jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt in school for outdoor sessions. Thank you.
DAILY MILE- Children in all classes undertake 15 minutes daily of walking or running around the school grounds. These sessions are intended to increase the children's activity levels, develop fitness and stamina and help children take advantage of the numerous physical and emotional benefits of regular exercise.
In Owl Class, we usually take part in the daily 15 first thing in the morning, straight after registration or straight after morning break. Children record the amount of laps they complete during the 15 minutes on a Friday - this helps us and them keep a track of the progress they are making.
Multiplication Tables - Children will be tested on their times tables on a weekly basis as part of the 99 club - it is important children spend time at home practising the tables facts they are currently working on. When children know all their multiplication tables up to 12x12 and the related division facts, they will be expected to apply them in order to work out calculations using decimals and multiples of 10 (0.7x8, 70x80 etc)
Home Link - Each week we ask that the children complete a piece of homework in their Home Link Book. Each week, there will be a summary of what children have learned in school in English, maths and one other subject, together with a suggestion of possible homework activities. Tasks linked to what the children have been learning in their spelling sessions will also be given. We ask that the Home Link books are handed in on Wednesdays to be given back out to the children on Thursdays.
