Welcome to Class Six
Welcome back - we hope you are all well. We are looking forward to starting your final year here at The Grange!
Any questions, please feel free to ring at the front office or email me:
Class Teacher: Mrs Craggs
Teacher: Mr Evans
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Bailey
Reading: Please ensure you are all reading every night and your reading record is signed and brought back into school, along with your home/school reading book, everyday.
Spelling: Please ensure you are all practising your spellings in your spelling book every night and returning it to school everyday. Spellings will be tested every Friday and new spellings will be handed out on a Monday.
Times Tables: Please ensure you are logging on to TT Rockstars at least three times a week and spending some time learning and revising your times tables.
At The Grange we believe that it is crucial to work in partnership with parents and carers. There is an expectation that you will support us by ensuring that your child completes the tasks we set as homework.
Obviously the level of engagement will depend on your child's age but we expect you take an active part in all aspects of homework and, where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g signing the Home/School Reading Record Book.)
The routines of reading every day, learning spellings and multiplication tables etc. can be great fun and very rewarding for all concerned. Best results are achieved when homework is not done at the last minute but has a fixed time in a child's established routine. Short, sharp periods of activity are preferable to prolonged periods of study where concentration can be lost.
Effective learning and consolidation of learning cannot happen in an environment with lots of distractions (e.g. television etc.) Please give some thought to where your child works at home.
