Welcome back for the last half term of your primary school career!
With SATs out of the way, we can now look forward to our PGL weekend and the end of year production - The Pirates of the Curry Bean!
I have put a copy of your Christmas/New Year homework research project instruction sheet in the Homework area, under the Links and Resources sub-heading.
Welcome to the 2016/17 academic year everyone.
We'll be making a lot of use of internet based homework this year. Each child now has their own blog on the blogging section and I have posted a set of rules for the use of these blogs.
Maths homework will be on MyMaths.co.uk. All children have login details and the site shows when homework assignments are due. English is based on The 100 Word Challenge. We will complete the first task in school to ensure that all the children understand how to post their writing on the class blog and the 100 Word Challenge website. The first English homework of the year will, therefore, go live on Sunday 10th September and must be completed by the following Thursday. In the meantime English homework will entail responses to posts on the class blog. We will be participating in the Global Read Aloud in October during which the children will have the opportunity to exchange views and engage in book talk with other children in schools in the USA, Canada and New Zealand. We also have an ongoing class connection with a class at POPCS school in Carrolton, Texas; during the year the children will be involved in a History/Geography project to inform the children in Texas about our local area.
The children will also be given a homework spelling list taken from the National Curriculum Year 5/6 List: I have put the Year 3/4 list on the class page of the school website for revision purposes. Spellings will be tested by dictation on Fridays.
P.E. will take place on Monday and Friday, please ensure that your child has the appropriate kit and that ear-rings can be removed. If possible, include an old pair of trainers as we will try to go outside on the field as much as we can.
All the children will be learning the harmonica as part of the Music curriculum. If your child has not previously received a harmonica from school, they will be given one. If your child was given a harmonica when in Year 4, they should use that. If it has been lost, please purchase a new one; suitable beginner harmonicas generally cost between £5 and £10. If you are buying one please check that it is a 10 hole Diatonic in the key of C – don’t worry, that’s the most common kind! (if you have any questions about this, please ask me). Please ensure that your child has their harmonica in their bag every day so that we can practice whenever the opportunity arises.
