PE

On PE day, we ask that your child attends school in their PE clothes. They will stay in these clothes for the rest of the day and return home in them. You may want to adjust what your child wears depending on the weather as due to COVID restrictions, PE will take place outside whenever possible.

 

2M’s PE day is on Thursdays.

2S’ PE day is on Fridays.

 

Homework

Your child take home their homework on a Friday each week. They will have one piece of Mathematics, one piece of Literacy and their weekly spellings.

 

We kindly ask that your child brings their homework back on the following Wednesday, which then gives staff time to review it as well as organize homework for the following week. Children who bring in their homework on time will be rewarded with Dojos!

 

The spelling test for each class will take place every Friday.

 

Reading books

Your child will be sent home with 3 reading books to read. Your child should be reading at least a couple of pages each night.

When your child has read all the books, they can bring them back to school on a Friday with their reading record. The books will then be isolated over the weekend and new books will be given the following Monday.

Please ensure you that you sign your child’s reading record to confirm they have read the books before handing them back in.

 

Online learning

Technology has become a fantastic resource for education and we encourage the children to use this where they can.

The school have subscriptions to the following websites:

Mathletics: https://login.mathletics.com/  

TT Rockstars: https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student

 

You will find the log in for these inside your child’s homework book. Alternatively, ask your child’s teacher for more information and they can guide you.

 

Remote Learning

Due to the effects of the Coronavirus pandemic, children may be asked to isolate whether that be individually or as a class bubble. Under these circumstances, your child will be able to participate in remote learning by logging into google classroom.
