Our Class Information

Adults in our class:

Routines

Handwashing: On arrival, children immediately go and wash their hands and then come to class for independent reading until everyone has finished handwashing. Handwashing also happens before and after break time and lunch, as well as at the end of the day. 

Spellings: We do a pre-test for spellings on Monday, a review of spellings on Wednesday and a spellings dictation on Friday each week. Children may practice using the spellings sheet they take home on Monday and using the Spellings Shed Website and App throughout the week. 

Times tables:  We will practise our times tables at least three times a week. The area of times tables we practice will also be available on the Maths Shed at the same time. 

Home Reading and Library Books: Each Monday, children will be given a leveled book to keep in their school bag. Ideally, to ensure good progression in reading fluency, children will read aloud to a parent/ carer at home each night for at least 10 minutes. Please write down in the reading record what has been read.

Each Friday children will bring their home reading and library books in to be put in storage for the weekend. On Friday, children may sign out a new library book.  On Monday, children will have a new leveled reading book.

PE Days: On Wednesdays, children need to arrive in their PE kit which they will stay in all day. Hair should be tied back for PE Lessons and earrings should be removed or covered. As the weather gets colder, please ensure children wear a warmer PE kit with a jumper and tracksuit bottoms.

Purple Mash Homework: All of the children have been given logins for Purple Mash. Some extra homework/ activities are added to Purple Mash regularly based on what the children have been learning in class. We will be using Purple Mash during computing lessons, and so children can also log on at home to show their families what they have been learning.
