- Children are able to change their banded books as and when they need to when they come into school in the morning. Boxes of books are outside the classrooms for children to independently choose from
- Show and tell is every Friday afternoon. In year 2 show and tell must be linked to our current project.
PE will be held twice a week, however it is suggested that PE kits stay in school all week as other activities may crop up. For children at the King Campus, PE lessons will be on a Monday afternoon and Tuesday morning. For children at the Kirk campus, PE lessons will be on a Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning.
Children at the Kirk campus will have Forest School lessons this half term. This will be on a Tuesday afternoon, so every Tuesday children will need to bring in a warm change of clothes and a pair of wellies to change into. Please check your child's class window for more information on Forest School. If you have any old wellies at home that you no longer need or want, we are always grateful for donations.
Please read with your child as often as possible at home and record in their home/school book which are checked daily. Each class has their own reading race where for everyday they read at home their name will move up a chart and they will earn a house point.
All children are encouraged to take part in our school wide reading challenge, which can be completed over the whole school year. This will give the children the opportunity to read a range of genres and develop their pleasure for reading.
Children will receive a weekly list of spellings to learn at home. These will be sent home every Friday and then checked in school the following Friday. Please support your child in learning to spell these words.
Project: 'The Circus is coming to town'.
During this project, the children will become circus performers. They will learn new circus skills and promote their own circus show. In Design and Technology they will become inventors and create their own circus buggy, thinking about the most suitable materials to use as well as making it attractive to look at. In Music they will become composers, using their voices and instruments to create their own circus song.
Children can design or make their own Big Top. We encourage children to be as creative as possible. However, a template is available from your child’s class teacher if needed. When complete, they can bring their project into school to share with the class. The deadline for this home learning project is Friday 31st January.
