PE: Class 6 will have two PE sessions a week. These sessions will be on a Thursday and Friday 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.
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. Children will receive 2 housepoints for handing their homework in early and 1 housepoint for handing it in on time. Each week we will work toward a whole class dojo for everybody handing in their homework.
Spellings: The children receive their individual spelling each week. 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 dojo 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 will have regular opportunities to change their reading books.
We will also be encouraging children to gain reading miles by reading as much as possible. There will be a prize each half term for those children who have the most amount of reading miles.
We will also be reading a selection of books as a class in our English lessons and afternoons. See class dojo or below for the current book list.
