In P.E on Friday we will be concentrating on fundamentals.
On Mondays we will take part in Forest School. We will complete various activities in the outdoors building confidence and independence.
In Art we will focus on drawing and in particular the use of tones.
Children will be sent home with spellings to learn each week, could you please find the time to practice with the children.
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 that we set as homework.
Obviously the level of your engagement will depend on your child’s age but we expect you to take an active part in all aspects of homework. and where necessary, indicate that you have monitored the completion of it (e.g. by signing the Home/ School Reading Record Book)
The routines of reading everyday, 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 home routine. Short, sharp period 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.
Please see below the extensive list of websites that your child can visit to consolidate and extend his/her learning.
I would like to thank parents/carers for your continued support at home. If you need any further guidance please contact me via the class email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
