Juniper Class will have their PE lessons on Tuesday and Thursday each week. Children are encouraged to only bring their PE kits into school only on these days, in line with Government guidelines.
Homework will be sent home every Friday afternoon. Children will be provided with a piece of maths homework, English homework, the current week's spelling pattern and your child's key times table at that given time. Homework is expected to be handed in by the following Wednesday, meaning that the teacher has an opportunity to provide feedback to the children. Should there be an issue, please speak to Miss Beavis before Wednesday to access any support required.
Every child will be provided with a reading band colour and this will inform your child of which colour reading book they can take home from the school library.Children are expected to read 3 times a week to support their learning in school. Reading records will be provided and monitored on a daily basis by the class teacher.
Spellings and Times Tables
Every child will have a key times table focus in which they are expected to practise at home in preparation for a times table test every Friday. Once your child has successfully shown multiplication and division facts for their key times table, they will progress onto the next.
Spelling rules will be taught weekly in class and a list will be provided in your child's homework every Friday. The children will have a spelling test, testing their spelling rule, on the following Friday.
