PPA Cover 

The teachers continue to have their entitlement to time for planning, preparation and assessment (PPA) and this will be

covered by Miss Thomas and Mrs Shaw. 

 

English and Mathematics 

The children will work in their mixed ability class groups for English (writing, reading and spelling) and mathematics.

Each week, you should expect your child to bring home a ‘spotty’ book and a library book. The children have the opportunity to change these as and when they finish them, as we encourage the children to read as much as they can.

 

Spellings 

The children will continue to bring home spellings to practise linked to those being taught.

 

Topic

We deliver the curriculum through a cross-curricular approach and aim to make it creative and enjoyable for the children, recognising that this is how our children learn best. At the beginning of each topic, we have a ‘Sparkly Starter’ to hook the children in to their learning and a ‘Fab Finish’ to round off and celebrate their learning. 

 

More information and detail can be found in the 'curriculum' section of this website.

 

 

PE Kit 

Please make sure that PE kit is in school each day. The children need a white t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms and a sweatshirt and suitable footwear. Please ensure all items are clearly named. Earrings must be removed on PE day.

  

Behaviour Policy 

The children very much look forward to visiting Mrs Hartley’s reward shop! These will continue this year alongside class rewards. The class chooses the class reward, and they have to earn it by achieving a number of marbles in their jar. We have also introduced a ‘WOW’ reward so that we can inform you of your child’s achievements.

 

Each class also has a ‘stop chair’. When a child has had a warning to improve their behaviour,  but continues to misbehave we will ask them to sit on the chair until we feel they are ready to join in with the learning. Parents will be informed if this has been used. 

 

Home Learning 

The children receive home learning weekly with either a English or Maths focus. Home learning is handed out on a Friday and should be returned the following Wednesday.

 

Please don’t hesitate to contact a member of the team if you have any questions.

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
