Welcome to team 3.
The children are settling into the school routine well and have made a great start to the Spring Term.
Below is some information that should help you to be well equipped and fully informed of the new term.
I hope your children have been able to tell you that this term our topic is ‘Journey’.
Our themes for Christian Distinctiveness throughout the Spring term will be Hope, Dignity, Community and Wisdom and this will underpin all our learning throughout the term.
For numeracy we follow a programme of learning through Maths No Problem. Literacy is taught following the Ebor Text Type Planning cycle.
Your child’s RE learning is taught through the locally agreed syllabus.
Through our learning we promote spiritual, moral, social and cultural development please follow the link to view our RE curriculum progression document.
Your child will bring home a reading book that is appropriate for their reading ability. Reading at home is focused on the enjoyment of reading, therefore, we ask that they read at least 4 times a week, talking about the text, what they have read and taken a guess at what would happen next. This develops their fluency in reading and understanding of the text. To help you support your child with their reading we have included a bookmark that highlights all of the things that they need to be able to do for the level they are working at. We ask that you record when you have listened to them read so that we can monitor this at school too.
Spelling homework is set every Friday and the children will be tested on their spellings the following week. Please help your child to learn their spellings. The New Curriculum puts a great emphasis on spelling, punctuation and grammar, and the children will be tested on this throughout the year. It is important that we give each child as much encouragement and support as possible in order to allow them to achieve their best.
The children look extremely smart and are proud to wear their school uniform. Every year we have lots of ‘stray’ uniform, therefore, we ask that you ensure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled so that we can reunite owner and item quickly. PE is on a Friday and the children will need both indoor and outdoor kit as the weather becomes colder (including trainers). PE kits can be left in school all week and then brought home on a Friday for a wash.
As we are trying to develop your child’s independence, we also ask that children are encouraged to come into school on their own, take off and hang their own coats up, and bring their own dinner money/reply slips into the classroom and hand them to the member of staff. Don’t forget we have Wake Up and Shake Up on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning starting at 8.40 am. This is a good opportunity for the children to get active before they start learning at 9.00 am.
Your child’s class teacher will see your child out of school at the end of the school day.
We are aware that arrangements sometimes change at the last minute. Please notify the school of any changes so that we can ensure that your child is safe.
If you wish to speak to a member of staff after school, please wait until all children are safe with their parents.
During the year we have parents’ evenings that give us the opportunity to discuss your child’s progress. However, our door is always open and if you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us.
