This year these are the staff that will be working with your children either in class, or extra sessions in intervention groups:
MRS GILLETT MRS ANDERSON
MR COWLING (PE) SENORITA ANDREA (SPANISH)
MRS KENYON (MUSIC)
MRS BESTER (COMPUTING AND PSHCE)
Homework will be sent home on a Friday to be handed in by the following week. Homework will alternate between learning logs and English/maths homework. English and maths will focus on the week's learning and learning logs will have a focus around our topics or any special events which may be happening within our community or nationally.
We will still be sending home the traditional learning log books but we will also be replicating this homework on the Seesaw app. It is a choice whether you wish to complete the homework in the book or online. Every child has been given a QR code and can be accessed through the Seesaw CLASS app. This homework will be in addition to spellings. We may also send home some extra phonics work from time to time and later in the year we will begin to send home times tables to learn.
New spellings will be sent home on a Monday ready for our spelling test on a Friday. Our spelling words will link with the sounds we have learnt in phonics during that week. Please help your children to learn their spellings at home too. Also, please make sure you send the little green book back into school every Monday to allow the children to be able to write their new spellings into them, ready to practice at home! Each week, a new video will be updated to help your child practice their spellings at home in the Super Spellers playlist on my YouTube Channel 'Mrs G's Little Lessons', which can be found here:
Regular uploads to help you learn at home focusing on maths skills as well as reading skills will also be updated to my channel - why not have a go at some of these online little lessons too?
