If parents could photograph any work their child does at home and email it to their teacher everyday this would be much appreciated. Your child deserves feedback and as teachers we need to see how children are performing in order to help them. Thank you
PARENTS - Look in Parent Information to see how you can help your child's well-being by encouraging them to use the 5 steps to Well-being everyday. Thanks for your help smiley

Homework reminder

 

Strive for 5 - read 5 times a week and get AN ADULT to listen to you and sign your homework book.

I believe our class can easily win the weekly Strive for 5 certificate! Come on we can do it!smiley

 

Times table practice - show me that you have practiced in your book on at least 4 different nights of the week and then you will be ready to show off your skills in class when we do our 3 minute Rockstar test everyday. 

USE TIMES ROCKSTARS, - the children who use it are definitely improving loads. I have genuinely heard children say, "I know my 9's because of Rockstars," and, "I am so much faster and it is all because of ROCKSTARS."

 

Spelling practice - show me that you have practiced your words in your book on at least 4 different nights of the week and then you will be able to spell your words easily on the test on Friday. Remember I love to see your pictures which include your spelling words wrote over and over again inside of them. USE SPELLING SHED - the children who are using it regularly are seeing a big improvement in their spelling.

 

Year 6 will have additional homework each week. You must do it not only to improve your skills but in order to get into a good routine for secondary school where no homework means detention!

 

 

Remember you will be rewarded for completing your homework AND striving for 5
