Curriculum Letter to Parents Summer 2021
Wow, here we are in the final Summer half term, and what a great topic to end the year with, Road Trip USA! I hope everyone managed to enjoy themselves over the half term and made the most of the glorious sunshine. We welcome Molly-May to St. John’s as she joins Class 3 as a member of Year 4.
P.E.- PE lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Fridays delivered by the Lancashire Sports Partnership. Children are being encouraged to come into school wearing their kit PE kit or sports wear on these days. Swimming - continues on a Thursday morning at Tarleton Academy. We leave school at 9.50 am and return before lunch.
Spelling—We continue with the No Nonsense Spelling Programme which embraces the knowledge of patterns and rules as well as the learning of spellings from the statutory words, common exceptions and personal spellings. Your child will be taught spelling daily in class and bring home a pattern / rule to focus on each week. Their understanding will be assessed each Friday. I am delighted with the progress seen last half term.
Reading— Thank you to so many parents that are supporting your child’s reading at home. Please continue to listen to your child read as often as you can and record this in the Reading Record book. Your child will read with me in a focused Guided Reading group on a weekly basis, as well as on a daily basis within lessons. Each child is responsible for changing their own book when needed, within the stage they are on. We are focusing on detailed understanding and comprehension of texts this year so please try to talk about the main events of the story / characters in the book / where the story takes place/ what will happen next etc.
Times Tables - Please encourage your child to learn their times tables as we practise them every week. The children will be given the opportunity to earn certificates as they progress. Please note it is important they understand the related division facts: 2 multiplied by 5 = 10 so 10 divided by 5 = 2. Each child has a log in for Times Tables Rock Stars, please ask if these have been mislaid, the children can log on at home for extra practice.
English / Maths Homework - This continues to be sent home every Friday to be completed by the following Thursday. Topic Homework ideas are on a separate sheet and are optional and ongoing.
Named water bottles and healthy snacks may be bought into school—toast is available, 20p each day or £1.00 for a week.
Please feel free to email me with any concerns or make an appointment in the office to see me. We are planning a Parent’s Evening this half term which will be an excellent opportunity to discuss your child’s progress.
Thank you, for your continued support,
Homelearning July 2021
Thank you everybody for the past 10 days support, I am impressed by the work completed and attendance on the daily Zoom lessons. However, we are now back in the classroom as of tomorrow and I am hoping the majority of Class 3 will return. I am aware however that some of us are still isolating and since I can't provide Zoom lessons while in class, I will still be providing homelearning. I am preparing a pack for parents to collect from the office from 11am tomorrow. In addition here are some websites to consolidate the learning on time, I will email additional work/ information as it arises. Thank you, Mrs Williams x
