PE: Class 6 will have two PE sessions a week. These sessions will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their full, named PE kit on these days and their kit is weather appropriate. Long hair will be tied up and jewelery will need to be removed.
Forest School: Class 6 have their forest school session on a Wednesday. The children are in two groups and will need to bring their full forest school kit on their week. The children are verbally reminded when their week is and they are expected to independently remember this information.
Homework: The children get two pieces of homework a week. One will be Mathematics and other will be English based. This is handed out to them on a Tuesday morning and it is expected to handed in on the Monday morning. They will be given a full explanation of the homework on a separate sheet. Children will lose minutes of Golden Time if the homework is not handed in on time.
Spellings: The children receive their individualised spelling list on a Tuesday morning. They will be tested and given their new set of spellings through 'sampling' of the different word families and statutory spelling list. Children will be rewarded with a brick and a house point for full marks on their spelling test (and an extra golden token if they beat their personal best score).
Reading: The children are expected to read their school reading book every day for at least 15 minutes. This will need to be recorded in their planner. When your child has completed their book they have the responsibility to tell their class teacher, who will then allow them to change their reading book. Children can change their library book every other week on a Thursday.
We will also be reading a selection of books as a class in our English lessons and afternoons. See the below letter which explains more about these books.
