PE - Children take part in two PE sessions a week. These are usually on Wednesday afternoon and Fridays morning but sessions can sometimes be weather dependant. Please can you ensure your child has the correct PE uniform in school all week (white top, dark shorts and jogging bottoms). 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.
Spellings - Spelling tests are on a Thursday morning. During the week children are taught new spelling rules and given chance to apply their new learning. Children then receive their new spellings, which they write into their Pirate books. At home, we ask that children practise their spellings on three separate occasions before returning their book to school to be checked on a Thursday.
Multiplication Tables - Children will be tested on their times tables on a weekly basis and 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. We ask that the Home Link books are handed in on Tuesdays to be given back out to the children on Thursdays.
Children have the opportunity to have a piece of fresh fruit everyday and milk on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
