Summer Term 2017

Welcome back, we hope you have had a great holiday.

This is a very busy term for the children. They have their SAT tests in May and we are busy preparing for them. The homework that we send home is based on the SAT tests and so it is very important that your child does their homework regularly, either independently or with your guidance.

Reading is also very important as one of the criteria for passing the SAT is that your child reads the text we send home at a speed of 90 words per minute. This can be done with regular reading with your child and we have had success in class with this . Parents are welcome to come in and read with their child in class. If you would like to do this please come and see Mrs Gooding.

In year 2, homework is given out once a week, usually Thursday and is expected back in on the following Thursday. Homework will be English and Maths and of course, weekly spellings. It is very important that this homework is completed as spellings are linked to the phonics work that we do in class and is especially important for those children who will retake the phonics screening test in the middle of June.

We must all work very hard and be on our best behaviour at all times . 

PE will still be on a Wednesday and as all children  recieve a PE kit from school we expect them to have this for each lesson. 

We hope that this term will be a  successful and fun one

Love Mrs Gooding and Mrs Irving

On the 11th November Key Stage 1 came together for 2 minutes silence to Remember those people who died in the war as well as those who are still fighting for peace. Look at our video -  this poem is beautiful.
