The information in this document is for Academic Year 2018-19.
Class Specific Update:
Homework will consist of spelling, grammar and maths and will come home every Friday, to be returned each Wednesday. Reading will be ongoing throughout the year so please ensure that your child brings their reading book and reading record to school every day. At the start of each half term, there will also be a project based homework linked to the topic we are studying.
Children will be heard reading in class during Guided Reading sessions and individually. Please help your child by regularly listening to them read at home. Being a good reader means more than being able to read the words on the page, it also means being able to understand what is going on. See the enclosed booklet for more information.
PE lessons take place each week – our class slot is Thursday. Please make sure that your child has their kit in school ready to take part. School PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps for indoor and trainers for outdoor lessons. Please remember that children cannot take part in lessons if they have earrings in. If your child does get their ear(s) pierced, they will need to be able to take their studs out before lessons by themselves. Staff are not allowed to help.
Lessons cover the entire National Curriculum at SASJ, this term your child will be learning about:
Each week, our class will be going to the library to choose a personal book to read in school and at home. Our weekly slot is Friday afternoon.
