POWer Project and homework

At the beginning of every half term a topic based project will be given out. This half term our topic is China. Children (and parents) need to ‘earn’ 10 POWer Points. You can choose any of the tasks to complete and do them in any order. When children have completed a task they should bring it to school. By all means go over the 10 points.

Click here to see our power project homework for this half term. Homework projects are due back by Wednesday 13th February.

There will be a good work assembly on Wednesday 30th January to showcase some of the children's creations.

  PE

 PE is every Monday and Friday with additional dance on a Thursday.

Could you please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school.

A white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps are the correct kit.

Appropriate footwear is needed and children may bring longer bottoms and a jacket in for colder weather.

 

 

 

Times Tables

Times Tables tests are every Friday. Your child must practise the times tables that are on their sheet. They do not have to practise under test conditions, however, there is a 5 minute time limit on test day, so they may find doing so good practise.

Home Readers

Could home readers be bought into school on Tuesdays and Thursdays 

please? So that an adult can listen to your child read.

Books will only be changed once the current book has been completed and they will have a choice between fiction and non-fiction books.

Spellings

Our spellings run for two weeks and the test is fortnightly on a Thursday.

Each half term children will also be given an additional set of spellings to learn. Two of these spellings will be added to the test on a  Thursday.
