New Homework Rules
Unfortunately some pupils are still not bringing their spelling homework back each Friday, practising their multiplication facts or reading frequently enough at home. As a reward to those who do, I will give them with an extra break time on a Friday afternoon, as the KS2 pupils do not regularly get a break during the afternoon session of school. For those children who are not completing the set homework of:
They will need to spend their free time (lunchtime & break time) completing that which has not been given in.
Please can you encourage and support your child to complete these tasks, they are incredibly important to the progression of their learning and are basic skills that they need in many areas of the curriculum, regular practice is essential.
Thank you for your help and support in this matter.
Did your child bring home the following this week?
If not please ask them about it.
Freddie, Jayden, Sienna, Jack, Emilija & Lexi.
Science Topic - Forces
The children were set the task of investigating the 'Perfect Parachute'. They had a number of variables that they could choose from and had to plan, design and make their own parachutes.
We then tested them! The winners were challenged to save an egg...we had some survivors and lots of fun!
Are Wednesday and Friday, please remember to have your kit in school at all times.
Should be brought and taken home daily for cleaning and refilling, it is scientifically proven that children and adults function better when hydrated.
Sheets should be returned, completed, on a Friday.
Your child should know which is their reading day. However, it would be helpful if children can have their reading books and diaries in their bags at all times in case of an interruption to the weekly plan or an opportunity for extra reading occurs. Please ensure that your child is reading out loud to an adult, they are more likely to spot their own mistakes or misunderstandings if they can hear themselves and also you can engage them in discussion about their understanding and enjoyment of a book.
