Who's Who?

Class teacher: Miss Dunwell

Classroom support: Mrs Alty

How many children in the class?

There are 25 children in the class!

PE 

Our PE day this year is on a Wednesday, please ensure your child has a full PE kit that has their name clearly labelled inside. Some PE lessons may be outside this year, so please send in some tracksuit bottoms and a warm top as well as their shorts, t-shirts and pumps. 

Our Curriculum

Homework 

 

 

Each half term, the children will get a 'Homework Learning Menu'. This will have activities from each of the topics we will be learning about in that half term. The children are to bring in at least 20 points worth of homework for the beginning of the last week of term.

 

Dojos are awarded for each piece of homework brought in. 

Spellings

Weekly spellings will be sent home on a Friday for the children to learn ready for our spelling test the following Friday. 

Assessment 

Your child will be assessed throughout the year. 

We use 'entering, developing and secure' using age related expectations to record your child's achievements. 

 

We expect children to be 'entering' in the Autumn term, 'developing' in the Spring term, and 'Secure' in the Summer term. Your child will therefore be 'on track' to reach the end of year age related expectations. 

 

We will report to you three times a year (Autumn Parent's Evening, Spring Parent's Evening and Summer Reports).
