I would just like to inform you about some of the procedures and activities your children will be doing over the next couple of weeks.
Last week, all pupils were given a book bag which contained their reading book and spelling book. In Class 3 we encourage the children to be more independent for themselves and organise themselves to complete activities, but I’m aware they sometimes need a reminder from time to time.
Reading All pupils should aim to read each night and record what they have read in their yellow reading record book.
Spellings The pupils will be given spellings every Monday which they should practise as often as possible. Please can I request that parents/guardians sign the spellings book to show that you have seen the new spellings.
Homework The pupils have been given a homework book today with a short task that requires completing each evening this week and requires returning next Monday. We have been looking at Food hunger around the world and we have been looking at different ideas of how we can make a difference. One of the areas is to reduce food waste, hence the activity they have been set for this week.
For any pupils who were absent today but would still like to start the task today I have attached the worksheet to this message.
In addition, the children will receive homework activities either in their homework book or via Google Classroom. Instructions will be provided with regards of when to complete.
Cooking With the new community-room we have access to cooking facilities, and we hope to take full advantage and use it over this term, especially with our new topic being Fabulous Food/Food for Thought.
I have sent a message to all pupils on their Google Classsroom account about the Fruit Salad we will be making in school this Wednesday (22nd September). Just in case they haven’t relayed this back to you they have all been asked to bring 4 – 6 different fruits, a small carton or plastic bottle of fresh orange juice and a container to hold their fruit salad in. All items should be in a container or bag which is labelled with their name. We will be preparing the fruit salad in school so the pupils will not be required to cut anything in advance.
PE The pupils have PE on a Monday and Thursday and should continue to come to school in their PE kits on those days. Please can I request that all pupils either remove all earrings on that day or have plasters to cover them. All hair should be tied back, and appropriate footwear worn. The pupils are currently participating in Netball and Indoor Athletics activities.
I hope this answers any questions you have, but if you have any further questions please leave a message with the school office.
Thank you for your support.
