The Daily Routine
The children spend the mornings in the Treehouse where the focus is developing their English and maths as well as speech, language and communication skills.
The children join their classes for assemblies and playtimes. At lunchtime they return to their classes for the afternoon sessions when they will be covering the other subjects in the curriculum. The children in Year 4 join their classes for swimming on either Tuesday or Wednesday morning and music on Friday mornings. The other children will have their music lessons in the Treehouse with Mrs Ayebare. Your child will also join their class for any trips or parent learning events.
- Homework will be given out on Friday and needs to be returned by Wednesday. Each week the children will have a piece of English and maths homework. If your child needs help with their homework, please speak to Miss Whittaker before the return day.
- Spelling books will be given out on Friday to be returned on Monday, ready for the spelling test. Some words may appear several times in your child’s list to ensure they are really embedded.
- We will be changing reading books every day. Please ensure that you have left a comment in the reading record each time your child reads at home. Aim to read with your child 3 times a week so they get lots of opportunity to practise skills. Your child may be asked to read the same book again in order to improve their fluency and understanding.
Borrowing books and games
Miss West will be in the front room of the school on Tuesday mornings until 9:15 with a range of books for you to borrow to read with your child at home.
In the Treehouse we have a selection of phonics and spelling games which you are also welcome to borrow.
