Dear parents/carers of children in 4H
It is lovely for me to be working with your children for another academic year. All the children have settled back into the class routines well and are working as hard as they can.
I am delighted that Mr. Bagwell has remained with me on a full time basis. Furthermore, Mme Caudrelier has joined us for half of each day - which is excellent.
On Thursdays the children will have specialist coach Tariq, for their P.E. lesson. Additionally, Mrs Head will teach them their science and English during this day.
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.
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.
SCHOOL TRIP/SPECIAL LEARNING EXPERIENCES
We will not be going on a school trip this term. It is hoped that, with your support, we will be able to have a Roman Legionnaire visit the school! The practicality and costs of this is being investigated.
Thank you for your support.
