P.E

Our PE days are Monday (where we will go swimming) and Wednesday. Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit, which is suitable for outdoors (including appropriate footwear). Your child must also wear their blue federation hooded jumper. Children with long hair need to have this tied up for these lessons and any jewellery, including earrings, need to be removed.

For swimming sessions, girls will need to wear a one-piece swimming costume and boys must wear close-fitting swimming trunks no longer than mid-thigh in length. The first swimming session will be on Monday 24th February and they will continue swimming each Monday until Monday 30th March.

Homework

Homework is sent out every Friday, and is due back in school on the following Wednesday.

Every week, children are expected to complete a piece of Reading homework, which can be selected from a variety of options from their Responding to Reading sheet. Additionally, children are expected to complete self-led Maths homework, improving skills such as mental multiplication.

Please ensure your child reads at home daily, as this is vital for developing their comprehension skills, widening their vocabulary and supporting them with their writing. Children who read more than three times per weekly, will gain extra playtime as a reward.

During each new big term, a topic-based homework project is set; this allows you to get creative at home with your child!

If your child is struggling with any aspect of their homework, we are always available to support them: they just need to ask.

Topic Homework – Anglo-Saxons

Your options for your project homework are as follows:

  • Find out about Anglo-Saxon invasions in your local area and present your findings to the class.
  • Research and make an Anglo-Saxon shield. Think carefully about any designs that you may need.
  • Try to make some Anglo-Saxon bread, (recipes can be found online).
  • Look at images of Anglo-Saxon coins and try to re-create your own.
  • Research and make an Anglo-Saxon round house, be inventive in the materials that you choose to use.

Topic homework is due in the week commencing Monday 16th March.

Parents are invited in to school on Tuesday 24th March at 2:45pm to showcase our homework.
