Welcome to White Class!
The adults helping your children this year will be Mr Jones- Class Teacher, Mrs Dale- HLTA, Mrs Astley and Mrs Conway will be responsible for changing children’s books.
PE for Autumn term will be Games on a Wednesday afternoon (outdoor) and Gymnastics (indoor) on a Thursday afternoon.
Please send children into school without earrings on these days and ensure they bring all the required suitable PE uniform.
Reading books will be changed on a Tuesday and Thursday. We will be trying to read with children as much as possible, as well as providing opportunities for solo reading so please send reading books and book bags into school every day. Please read with the children at home as often as possible, listen to them and discuss what they have read to ensure they have full understanding of the text and any unfamiliar vocabulary.
The seating arrangements are a little different this year, children will be sat facing forwards where possible, meaning they may not always be sat next to friends. This seating will change regularly and will be based on mixed ability grouping so children can learn from one another.
Spellings will be sent home on a Monday, they must practise and become familiar with the words and need to be returned by Friday for assessment of learning.
Please look on the curriculum section of the class page to see what your children will be learning about this year.
The children seemed to have really settled in well and I believe they are becoming comfortable in adjusting to the demands and expectations in upper KS2. We have already had a great start to the new academic year and are looking forward to lots of exciting learning opportunities!
Thank you for your continued support
Mr Jones and Mrs Dale
