Welcome back to school Class Ten.
We hope you all had a wonderful Summer.
We are really looking forward to the exciting year ahead.
In English we will be concentrating on SPAG revision, handwriting and will be reading over some Ancient Greek mythical stories.
In Mathematics we will be looking at place value which includes ordering and comparing numbers, counting forwards and backwards, counting in different multiples, estimating numbers, writing numbers in numerals and words etc;
In Science, we will be learning about 'Sound' We will be looking at how we hear sounds and will be making our own instruments concentrating on the different pitches sound can make.
In Computing we will be looking at basic computing skills and online safety.
On a Monday and Tuesday afternoons we will be focusing on social and emotional interventions with groups of children. As we will be getting to know children during this Autumn half term we will be concentrating on games and learning how children interact with each other in order to inform the social and emotional interventions which take place for the remainder of the year.
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
