This replaces our PE lessons.
PE kits to be worn on Mondays - please remember to bring your swimming kit with you!
Welcome back to Turquoise Class. We hope you all had a fabulous Christmas holiday and that not too many plans had to be changed or cancelled whilst we were off!
We are really upset that not everyone can join us back in class and we hope that those of you at home are healthy and ready to return to school in no time! If you are isolating, please see the UKS2 webpage for the remote learning.
In Turquoise Class, we will be swimming in Monday afternoons during the first half of the spring term.
These are the days that the children can attend school in PE kits. Please make sure the children bring their swimming kit on Mondays, with everything (and we really do mean everything - you'd be amazed at what turns up in lost property!) clearly labelled.
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 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. This is very important in years 5 and 6 to support the children with their everyday Maths lessons.
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 a helpful document about how you can support reading at home.
Remember - No jewellery is allowed in school expect for stud earrings and watches.
Girls MUST have their long hair tied up.
Please make sure your child has their own water bottle in school which is clearly labelled with their name.
Please see the Upper Key Stage 2 shared page for all remote learning. Thank you.
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.
