Teacher – Miss Gee Teaching Assistant – Miss Thornhill
Dear Parents and Carers,
We had a great half term last year learning all about Pompeii and Volcanoes. Some fantastic models came in so thanks for your hard work on that at home! Our new learning is based around the book ‘Farther’ and is about war, ambition and loss. This also ties in with our Remembrance Project at Stockport Art Gallery. All children in Y3 and 4 will have poems displayed during this exhibition, which we hope you can visit and see.
Apologies that the last parents meeting was cancelled due to Miss Gee’s illness but a new one is now on offer for Thursday 8th November. If you can’t make that day speak to Miss Gee and she will sort you another time.
Planners and Reading Books
Your child now has a planner to record their reading. Please can you make sure they bring their reading book and planner EVERY DAY and record in there when they have read with you at home.
If your child has not read at home 3 times a week by Friday they will have chance to read extra during playtime on the following Monday to ensure they don’t fall behind with this key skill.
Please support your child and encourage them to undertake homework. Your child will receive a Homework Grid each half term with points to earn for tasks. Each week your child will have a set of spellings to learn and a times table grid. These will be given out on a Monday and need to be returned on a Friday. 2 points will be given for each that is completed. Your child will be given a target to achieve and if they put in the effort to achieve this, they will receive a small prize.
If your child has been unable to do any homework then they will have opportunity to catch up with this learning during Golden Time on a Friday. If there is a genuine reason that children cannot complete homework due to circumstances please send a note. We understand life at home can be challenging!
Your child will need their PE kit in school all the time. Their main P.E days are now Monday, Tuesday and Thursday.
Named White T shirt Named Black Shorts Named Jogging/tracksuit pants
Named Trainers/Pumps (not school shoes)
Spares will be leant if kit is not provided. Plasters to cover earrings must be provided.
Our regular library day will now be Tuesday. Please make sure your child has their library book in school that day, or they won’t be able to change their book until the following week.
Thank you for your continued support this half term and going forward.
Miss Gee and Miss Thornhill
