Class 6 PE days are Monday and Thursday. PE kit should be worn to and from school on these days to prevent the need for changing. Please make sure that tracksuits are worn in cold weather and that children have suitable trainers which support their ankles. Long hair must be tied up, earrings will need to be removed or taped up and nails must be kept short to avoid injury to themselves or other pupils during practical sessions.
Homework will be set via Purple Mash, BugClub, Timestable Rockstars or SATS Companion on a Monday and should be completed by the following Monday. Children will write their homework in their planner (Year 5&6) or a note will be sent home giving details of the homework set, plus your teacher will update Class Dojo with a homework message each week. If you cannot access any of these online platforms, you will need to inform your child’s teacher asap who will arrange for them to complete their homework in school on their class' ‘Homework Club’ day. On this day, technology will be available for children to complete their homework in school.
Age- appropriate texts
Across the whole of Renhold Primary School, we encourage the reading of age-appropriate class texts to inspire the imagination of the children and to create high quality writing opportunities. All books that we have chosen are recommended by literary persons, who deem them age-appropriate.
In Years 5 and 6, this can sometimes mean that some language within chosen texts needs further explanation to the children. As teachers, we would explain the use and appropriateness of some language we come across in our texts to allow the children to understand why it has been used and in which context it is meant.
As we continue to learn remotely, as parents and carers, you may wish to explain the use of this language to your child before completing an activity. If you need any support with doing so, please contact your child’s teacher who will be happy to help.
