Welcome to Flamingos
Welcome to Flamingo Class! I hope you had a great time over the summer holidays. I am sure you are now ready to start the new school year. I am looking forward to working together so that we have a very exciting and productive year. Our main topic this term is The Victorian and we will also be investigating Electricity within Science.
Homework is set on a Thursday and children have until the following Tuesday to complete the set tasks. Each child will be set spellings following a particular pattern or rule, which will be recorded in their homework diaries.
English and Maths homework will be set weekly. Times tables and Maths homework will be set on ‘My Maths’ Login details will be stuck in the front of their homework books. If you have trouble accessing the Internet or experience any ‘Technical difficulties’ please let me know. Completed homework will be collected on the following Tuesday.
We would like each child to read at least 3 times a week to an adult at home, talking about what they have read. If your child reads at least 3 times a week and this is recorded in their record book (signed and dated by an adult) they will receive an extra house points. As well as reading at home children will also have lots of opportunities to read and enjoy texts throughout the week at school.
The children will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. It would be helpful if the children’s PE kits could be kept in school in case of any unforeseen timetable changes. Their kit should include; shorts, tee-shirt and plimsolls. When the weather gets colder they can wear trainers and tracksuits for outside. Please clearly label all items.
- The children may bring in their own water bottle to keep in class which they can access and refill throughout the day. Please ensure water bottles are also clearly labelled.
- Healthy snacks will still be available to purchase at break times.
