PARROTS CLASS AUTUMN TERM 2021
Welcome back to what we hope is a much more 'normal’ year at school.
The children are already settling beautifully into their new routines, working hard and playing nicely.
You may have heard that the children have three teachers this term. Mrs Stead is teaching Spelling, English, Maths and topic work every morning and computing and gymnastics on a Wednesday afternoon. On Monday and Tuesday afternoons Miss Bowen will teach PSHE, Music, PE and reading comprehension skills. On Thursday and Friday afternoons Mrs Milward is teaching reading comprehension skills, art/DT and Science. We will all be keeping you up to date via Seesaw so please make sure you are accessing this regularly, and if possible, keep notifications turned on. PE ready days are Tuesday and Wednesday.
We are looking forward to a fun but purposeful term and you can find out more about our learning journey by clicking on the newsletter link below. You will also find a link to our class timetable.
HOMEWORK - we set English and maths homework on alternate weeks. Books will be sent home on a Monday and will need to be returned on or before the following Monday for marking. In addition, we expect children to read with an adult for 10 minutes, five times a week, and to practise their froggy maths when they are able to.
COMMUNICATION - Most messages will be sent out via Seesaw and you can contact us using the messages or notes functions within the Seesaw app. If any paper based letters are sent this will come home in your child's book bag and any slips should be returned in the book bags please.
TEAM WORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK - If you need to tell us something or have you questions you'd like to ask, you can catch any member of staff at the school gate to pass a message to us, or send a message on Seesaw. We cannot fix anything we are unaware of, so please speak to us as soon as possible if you have any concerns and encourage your children to do the same.
Have a happy and healthy half term.
Mrs Stead, Miss Bowen and Mrs Milward
