Home learning tasks will be set on a Monday, and are due in on the following Monday. This may take a variety of forms, depending on your child's class, individual needs, and their current area of learning. Spellings are set weekly; each child has 10 words to practise at home as well as spelling sentences; these are all based on the National Curriculum word bank, and we appreciate your support in practising these at home. In addition to this, it is vital that your child is reading daily, and that reading records are signed at least three times weekly and seen in school on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Secondary School Placements
As you may be aware, you can start applying for secondary school placements within the community and surrounding areas as of the 12th September. We would highly recommend you do this sooner than later, as the closing date for applications is the 15th January 2020. Offers will be made on the 16th April 2020, with a deadline for parents of the 30th April 2020 to accept or decline the offer.
We have already scheduled a class visit to Whitworth Park School on the 17th September.
PE lessons will be held on a Monday and Friday afternoons. PE kit should consist of: black shorts, trainers and a change of top (a school t-shirt in house colours).
Each day you'll find a new set of daily activities to get involved with on the Twinkl Home Learning Hub. Each day, qualified Twinkl teachers will provide book readings, live lessons, positive news updates and more. They'll be bringing you activities from their partners too, to help fill your days and offer some much-needed variety. Activities will be listed the day before - giving you enough time to get prepped and set up for the next day's learning.
Find your own approach. Don't worry about recreating school at home. But - if you're looking for ideas, or a way of adding a bit of routine into your day, you'll find it y clicking the Twinkl logo below.
