Welcome to Heron Class!
Spellings are handed out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday. The spellings are based on the work we are doing in class in Letters and Sounds and on high frequency words. If you lose your spellings, there will be spare copies on the Parent's Notice Board in the cloakroom for you to take.
Children, please bring in your reading book and reading diary into school every day. Try and read to an adult every day at home for 10 to 15 minutes.
Homework is given out on a termly basis and I ask for any completed homework to be handed in on a Friday. Homework tasks will be varied and you may choose which tasks you would like to complete. Spare copies will also be available on the Parent's Board. Parents - if you're able to spend some time helping the children on their homework, that would be fantastic.
Our PE lessons this year will take place on Tuesday afternoons every week and on a Thursday afternoon on a fortnightly basis. Our outdoor classroom slot will alternate with the second PE lesson on Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their full, labelled PE and Outdoor Classroom kits in school on these days.
I would be very grateful to any helpers who would like to come in on a regular basis to hear readers and as this has a huge impact on our young readers. The children will also be busy practising their number bond facts so if anyone is free for period of time, please do let me know. Later in the term, it would also be brilliant if anyone would like to help the children learn their times tables with our '77 Club'. If you would like to volunteer to do this, please pop in and speak to me or Mrs Hague at the office.
Children, try and remember to bring in a water bottle and please remember to name the water bottle. Drinking water helps your brain to function better!
