Summer Term 2017

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

Welcome back to school. We have a lot of fun activities to look forward to this term such as our trip to Wymondley Wood, the End of Year Production and all our sporting events. First we must concentrate on SATs which start on Monday 8th May. Please ensure that your child is eating and sleeping well, drinking plenty of water and on top of any medication such as asthma or hay fever tablets. The children in Oak Class have worked incredibly hard this year and we all want them in good shape so they can reach their full potential. 
Our approach to teaching phonics and reading is this: Pupils will have regular independent reading time, and for some, this will be with an adult. We aim to develop reading stamina so the children can tackle more complex texts, and all children are expected to read daily at home as well. All children will do a small group guided reading session with an adult twice each week, and we are having a focus on spelling this year, to assist the children to meet the high standards expected with the New Curriculum.  
Homework will be given out on Friday, to be handed in on the following Monday morning. It is very important that this is done because it consolidates the work done during their school week and is part of getting pupils Secondary Ready. Homework Club is run during lunch time on a Friday for Key Stage Two if you wish to take advantage of that facility. You will notice that homework will contain details of a Maths and Literacy target, in order that you can assist your child's learning at home. Spellings and Maths tests will usually be on Thursday mornings.
PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Please remember labeled kit for these days, including appropriate footwear for both outdoor and indoor games. Indeed, all school uniform should be clearly marked to avoid a mountain of lost property.

Yours Sincerely


Mrs Scott and Mrs Beaven
