Dear parents/carers of children in 4H
The children have settled back into the class routines well and are working as hard as they can.
Mr. Bagwell and Mme Caudrelier are making a wonderful contribution to your children's education being able to provide extra, targeted support and practise. Also, the children are loving the opportunity to have a native French speaker in their class. This has certainly improved their French - and mine too!
On Thursdays the children will still have specialist coach, Tariq, for their P.E. lesson. Additionally, Mrs Head will teach them their science and English on this day. They will also have Forest School on Thursdays where they will be making Iron Age homes as part of our topic on The Romans.
I am usually on duty at the school gate on Mondays and most times on the playground after school.
If you have any concerns that need my attention, please speak to me then. At other times tell the school office and I will contact you as soon as possible. If you prefer - write me a note, so we can work together to support your child.
Very best wishes,
We have P.E. every Thursday. This will require the children to wear their school sports kit. We are also undertaking, a stamina building, daily 10 minute run. No special kit is required for this.
Homework will be given out on a Friday. It is to be completed by the following Wednesday. From time to time homework will include access to on-line practise programs.
Please listen to, and read with, your child at home and make a record in their reading diary. Remember, daily practice with an adult can increase your child's enthusiasm and understanding of reading. It will also enhance their progress. We hope you will be able to do this at least 3 times in 7 days. There will be extra team points for every child who reads at least3 times a week. Reading diaries will be checked on Wednesdays and points awarded.
Please remember to remind your children to regularly practice their times tables, number bonds, and other mental arithmetic techniques, as well as their handwriting and spellings.
The weekly tables and expert challenge is undertaken on Thursdays with a formal spelling test on Fridays.
Thank you for your support.
