Welcome to Purple Class!
This half term we will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children should where their PE kit to school on those days.
Relationships and Sex Education
Over the next two half terms, as part of the statutory curriculum, your child will be taking part in some lessons in PSHE that will focus on relationships and sex education. These lessons will be on puberty, life cycles, reproduction and contraception. The lessons will be delivered by your child’s class teacher. The lessons are very carefully planned and delivered and there will be a chance for your child to ask any questions that they have. We have also sent a letter home about this so that you can support your child at home if they wish to discuss things further.
If you have any concerns, please feel free to contact the school.
Homework and spellings
Each week, children will be given a piece of mathematics or English homework. This homework includes learning spellings. This will be handed out on a Friday and needs to be brought back into school on a Wednesday.
Learning logs will be given each half term. Please note that you are expected to complete two of these as a minimum, but you can choose to do more if you wish. The final deadline for these to be handed in is the last Wednesday of the half term.
Spellings will be sent home every week. They need to be learnt for the spelling tests. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts.
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.
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 and can record their own reading in their reading diaries.
Below, you will find the link so they can complete quizzes at home.
