Library Sessions

 

Tuesday after school

 

 

The library is open every Tuesday from 3.30pm to 4pm for children to borrow a book for 14 days after which it needs to be returned to the library and changed or renewed. Each book has a unique library barcode. Every child has their own code as well so books are scanned in and out of the library. Please do not return library books to the classroom. 

If you have any queries regarding the library please see Mrs Noad or Mrs Sheppard. 

 

 

PE Sessions

 

Monday 1.15pm to 3.15pm

 

Please ensure your child has their full named PE kit in school. PE bags are sent home every holiday giving parents an opportunity to wash items and check that their kit still fits. PE clothing that is too small restricts the children and is uncomfortable.
PE kits should be in school every day as on occasions PE sessions may be rearranged.

 

 

Homework

 

 

 

Children need to be practising their reading and maths. The minimum expectation is 3 times a week, with an adult.

Reading can consist of activities such as Page 99, Tricky Work Window, Dictionary work or answer questions about a section of the text.

Maths is in line with their record of achievement in the back of the Home Record Book.
Depending on where your child is will depend on what maths skill they are developing but no matter which one it is, the activites will be similar.
Activities such as chanting, quick fire questions, mini quizzes, googling times tables games or free apps found on tablets are great examples of what they could do. There are also links to English and Maths games in the children section of the school website.
Children will be tested weekly to achieve their Star Awards!
