The door to the front playground will be open at 8:30 to allow children to come into school earlier where they will have Target Time work set. The register will be taken promptly at 8.45AM. At the end of the day children will leave at 3:15 and be escorted onto the front playground. We request that those collecting children come into the playground and not expect children to cross the road onto the green independently.

Learning

   Autumn 1    Autumn 2 
Spring 1 Spring 2
*Coming Soon*
Spring 1 & 2

*Click on the links below for your child's weekly spellings*

 

 

Green Group Spellings

Children in Green Group will be focusing on some trickier spellings with words from the year 5/6 statutory frame work woven in throughout.

 

Yellow Group Spellings

Children in Yellow Group will be focusing on a mixture of spellings including some from the year 5/6 statutory framework.

 

***All spellings for Green and Yellow Group are stored in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Please use the tabs at the bottom of the page to go between the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms.***

 

 

Red Group Spellings

Children in Red group have 8 weekly spelling which have been created on Communicate and Print to help children's conceptual understanding of the words they are learning. I have reduced the number of spellings due to the increased difficulty level. Unfortunately we have had a few issues with the online file format of Communicate and Print, so for the Spring Term, children will need to take home a paper booklet of the spellings to learn from.

 

 

Timing/Homework

PE - PE lessons with Mr Thacker will be conducted on a Tuesday. Please ensure your child has their kit

        Gymnastics lessons will be on a Wednesday morning. Please ensure your child has their kit

Spellings - Out on Monday - Tested on Monday

Maths (Mathletics) - Out on Friday - In on Wednesday

English (SPaG.com - Y6 only) - Out on Friday - In on Wednesday

Reading - Children are expected to read most days for pleasure and I would recommend they read to an adult 3-4 times a week in order to discuss their understanding. 

We look forward to having a fantastic Spring Term and seeing you all soon!
