Weekly Routines

Reading

Children have the opportunity to read every day at school, individually or with an adult. It is crucial however that reading at home is encouraged, ten minutes a night all adds up, particularly in such a crucial year where there is a huge focus on reading for pleasure.  Once your child has read at home please sign their planner.
When your child has read all of their book, they can then change the book. We are currently awaiting school planners, as soon as we receive them each child will be given one.

Homework & Spellings

Homework is given out in a  homework folder on a Wednesday and is expected to be brought in on the following Monday. It will consist of either a piece of Maths work on the current area of Maths we are focusing on in class, or a piece of Topic work to complete. Children will be given a list of 10 spellings to learn for that week and spelling tests will be done every Monday. 

 PE

PE is usually on Tuesday and Wednesday but please bring PE kits to school on Monday through until Friday in case this changes. 

PE kit includes white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers for the Summer Term. Tracksuit (of any colour) in the Autumn and Spring Terms. 

 

 

 Beachcombers!

 

This half term our topic will be beachcombers, which focuses mainly on English and Science, looking at classfying animals, and habitats. We will be looking at all the creatures found at the seaside, as well as human and physical coastal features. We will also incorporate an element of PSHE by discussing how we can care for our environment.
