The children are provided in school with all the equipment they will need for learning. Each child in Morpurgo class has their own equipment which they are expected to take care of.
Children will have their PE lessons on a Monday and Tuesday this term. Please ensure that your child is wearing their PE kit in school on the correct days so they can fully access their PE lessons.
For warmer weather PE kit should be:
White t-shirt and blue or black shorts, suitable trainers.
For colder weather PE kit should be:
White t-shirt, navy/black jogging bottoms and jumper, suitable trainers.
Whatever the weather, children need to have a water bottle in all week to rehydrate during PE lessons and at other times.
As always, no jewellery please, except a small pair of studs for pierced ears which the children will need to be able to remove for PE lessons. Please no nail varnish and tie hair back if below shoulder length.
Homework will be set each Friday and should be handed in by the following Wednesday.
Children will be given a spelling list each Friday (this will be within their homework book-green). Their books should be brought back to school on Wednesday to be checked before sending home again on Friday. The children will be tested on their weekly spellings each Thursday.
Children should continue to read on a daily basis, including sharing books together. Please ensure you child's planner is signed by an adult every time you hear them read. This will also be checked each Thursday. As the Eynesbury Echo reminds us weekly, there are great benefits to be had from regular reading!
All children have a TT Rockstars login and should be practising regularly using this. Many children are having lots of fun with this and seeing their knowledge and speed increase. We will be checking to see who has logged on and who has beaten their previous scores.
If you have any issues/ concerns about any aspect of the homework please do contact us. You can write to us, email us or make a note in the children’s planner.
