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 Extreme Survival. 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 Monday 3rd June.

There will be a good work assembly on Wednesday 26th June to showcase some of the children's creations.

  PE

 PE is every Monday and Tuesday (swimming).

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 a  Thursday

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

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

Spellings

Our spelling test is 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.
