Important information

PE

In Autumn 2, our PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.

These are the days that the children can attend school in PE kits. Please make sure the children have appropriate clothing to be doing PE outdoors as they will be having their lessons outside as much as possible.

Please still have ALL clothing labelled, especially jackets and coats, so items can easily be identified if lost.

Homework and spellings:

Each week, children will be given an online piece of homework. This homework includes learning spellings. This will be handed out on a Friday and needs to be completed and handed in by Wednesday. For the first few weeks of the half term, we will be teaching the children how to access and complete their homework using Microsoft Teams. When all the UKS2 classes feel their classes are ready, we will start sending homework home using Microsoft Teams. We will inform you of this when a date has been decided. 

Spellings will be sent home every week. The children will also have a spelling task sheet from which they can select a task that they feel helps them to learn their spellings. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts. There will no longer be weekly spelling tests however children must continue working on their spellings each week at home and will continue to do so every day in class. 

It is important that all children are learning their times tables up to 12 x 12. They need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts. This is very important in years 5 and 6 to support the children with their everyday Maths lessons.

Reading

Reading remains a key priority. Please remind your child to bring their homework diary and reading book to school every day. 

We expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The children are responsible for making sure their reading records are signed every time they read.

Your child does not have to always read to you. They can read to themselves or others. However, it is important to listen to your child regularly and support their reading and comprehension at home.

At the bottom of this page you will find a helpful document to how you can support reading at home.

The children are also allowed to read books from home and complete reading quizzes on these too.

Important information

Remember - No jewellery is allowed in school expect for stud earrings and watches.

Children MUST have long hair tied up - this is both boys and girls and includes fringes over the face.

Please make sure your child has their own water bottle in school which is clearly labelled with their name.

Contact Information

Can we please remind you to double check with the office that your contact details are up-to-date. Newsletters are on the website and have lots of key information and dates for you. Please make sure you are checking these regularly. 

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Remote Learning

If your child is isolating, please make sure you email their work each day to turquoisehw@tonacliffe.lancs.sch.uk ! You will find the work to complete on the joint remote learning page for UKS2 on the class pages section of the website. We look forward to seeing the work your child completes and keeping in touch with them whilst they are learning at home!

Thank you,

Miss Griffiths and Mrs Devine

Online thesaurus

Here is a video explaining how to use an online thesaurus as we know not everyone has a thesaurus at home. You know how much we love you to use ambitious vocabulary choices so this should be really helpful for you when doing your English work.
