Elder will go swimming on Monday and Hazel will go swimming on Tuesday.

Pupils can wear their school PE kit every Tuesday.

Reading records (blue book) and home reading books must be in school every day. Please help us by writing in the blue home reading record book when you read with your child. This helps us as we can move your child onto the new book more quickly. Remember to read 5 times at home to get a stamp.

Homework is set on Seesaw on a Monday and is expected to be completed by the following Monday. Staff will mark the children’s work online and send it back for the pupils to see. Children will be given 2 pieces of homework on Seesaw per week – Maths and Grammar.

Pupils have received their own individual QR Code/Text Code to log in to Seesaw on a laptop or tablet at home. Smart phones can also be used to access the work; however, pupils may struggle to type on such a small screen so we recommend handwritten answers on paper which can then be photographed and uploaded as that child’s piece of work.

Pupils are also expected and will be monitored online by class teachers that they complete the following activities each week:

Reading Plus –.6 tasks.

Maths Shed – regular practice.

Spelling Shed – regular practice.

Times Table Rockstars – regular practice.

Earth and Space Project:

Children are invited to complete a project at home about EARTH and SPACE – this could be a homemade 3D model of the solar system or a poster with information. Or any another way they choose to present the information they find out. We will share these in our year group in the week beginning 4th April.
