Welcome to our school

Our class information

 

  •  The bell sounds at 8:45, and we encourage parents/carers to come into class with their child from 8:45-8:55am.  We will have arranged different 'Morning Jobs' for you to do with your child if you wish. This is also a perfect time to ask anything you may need to, or let us know about changes to who is picking your child up (etc) if needed. Below are examples of what we (usually) do on each day:

 

    • Monday:  We usually hand out Maths books and ask you to read this and help explain my feedback/marking to your child. We hand out post-it notes too, and welcome you to write your own feedback. This is displayed in class, and children and visitors often comment on these.
    • Tuesday:  Similar to Tuesday's, except we put out Literacy books and ask for comments/discussion on this work instead.
    • Wednesday:  We have maths minutes activities for the you and your child to complete
    • Thursday:  All children change into PE kits at 8:45 and we ask that NO ADULTS come into class.  (If you need to see/speak to me, I can come out to see you in the cloakroom or outside).  Thank you for your help in this.
    • Friday:  We play maths games.

     

    PE kit/uniform:

    In Turquoise Class, we have PE on Mondays and Thursdays, please could you keep their PE kit in school all of the time.  That way, if we have special workshops or need to change the PE day on a certain week, they will still be able to participate.  Please could you label all items with your child's name.  The same goes for all uniform please! Please also ensure that earrings are removed or taped (if they have been in less than 6 weeks) before coming to school.

     

    Reading Diaries/Book Bags:

    Please can you check your child's book bag EVERY NIGHT and hear them read/fill in their diaries at least 4 times a week as this makes a big difference in their reading progression! Please remember that if they need new reading books for home, you can swap these before or after school down the Lane.  We also put any letters/notes in their bags, so please check if there is anything you need to read and/or complete/return to school.
