Welcome to Hawk class! I hope everybody had a great summer holiday and have come back relaxed and ready to start a new year. Below is some information that may be of use to you, but if there is anything that is not on here, please feel free to grab me at the end of the day.

General Information: 

Children are welcome into the classroom from 8:30am, and there will be work out for them to complete.

The register will be taken at 8:50am. 



Mathletics and an English task will be set on a Friday, and be due in on a Thursday. Any student who does not complete their homework by the deadline will be kept in Thursday lunch time to complete it. If a child does not complete their homework three times, a letter will be sent home to inform you.

Spellings will be tested weekly, on a Friday. Each week we will be focusing on a different spelling rule and the children will be given ten spellings based on that rule.  The children write them in to their spelling books on a Monday morning. These books will be going home so that the children can practice. Children who get less than 6 on the test on Friday will be retested again on the Monday. If you are finding that the spellings are too hard, or they are causing your child stress, please feel free to come and see me.


PE with Mr Thacker will take place every Tuesday morning, and a class session with me at a later point in the week. 

Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit in school at all times as PE sessions could potential change due to weather etc. Football kits and studs can only be worn during Football clubs/training sessions.

Earrings: earrings cannot be worn for PE sessions for health and safety reasons. Children will have to take them out before the session. If your child can not take their earrings out and put them back in by themselves, I ask that they do not wear earrings to school for that day.
