We hope that you had a wonderful Easter break. Hopefully the weather will continue to be bright and we can enjoy the outdoors.
We will post weekly homework tasks here every Friday. Below are the tasks for Friday 5th May.
The children are allocated a time slot to change their reading books on a Friday. They are to pick books from their ZPD range. This means the texts they are reading are at an appropriate level for them. They will be bought home on Friday night and are to be returned the following Friday. They also have books from their ZPD range in school. Whilst your child might be able to read fluently, it would be incredibly beneficial if you could read with your child, and also talk about what they have read. Some children will be coming home with a Read Write Ink book as well. They will be given this by the teacher who leads their sessions, so they may come home on a different night.
Reading is part of homework, in addition to this, there will be weekly spelling tasks set on the computer programme ‘Spelling Shed’. Weekly maths tasks will be set on My Maths- another computer programme. The children should also practise their times tables on TTRockstars; this is especially important for the Year 4 children as they have a statutory test on all their times tables up to 12, in the Summer Term. A sheet will coming home at the end of the week with website addresses and log in details.
Our P.E day is Wednesday and children are doing a great job of coming into school in their PE kit. Thank you to the parents of children who wear earrings, for either removing the earrings for the day, or coming to school with tape on- this is very much appreciated. From 26th January- we will have our PE day on a Thursday as the children are having tennis coaching at Chatsworth tennis Club.
We look forward to working with you to support the needs of your child. If you need to speak to us, then we are always available on the playground at the end of the day, alternatively contact the office and we can arrange a time to meet.
