We have had a fantastic week making a good start on our English, Maths and Topic lessons. The children have had to learn a lot about expected standards of presentation and how they can monitor and let us know how they feel about their work.
The children really enjoyed going down to the pool this week. The main part of the lesson there was for pool staff to teach the children safety rules and to assess children’s confidence and abilities. This now means that they have been placed in the appropriate groups ready to start lessons properly next week.
All children have now been placed on a reading book appropriate to their ability. Please write in their Homework Diary when you hear then read. They will also be reading as part of a group Guided Reading lesson every week.
We will be issuing homework from Monday. Spellings will be given every week to be assessed the following Friday. This week’s spellings are below. English and Maths activities will be set on alternate weeks. In addition there will be a Topic Project to complete across the half term. Please look at the Homework section of the website for details.
This week the children have completed a painting of Repton in the style of Clarice Cliff for the British Legion Competition. Details of the display will follow shortly.
Finally, we would like to invite you to our ‘Meet the Teacher’ night on Wednesday 19th September at 3.30pm. This is a chance for you to come to your child’s class room and find out a little more about what we will be doing this year and get to know the teaching team.
