The door to the front playground will be open at 8:30 to allow children to come into school earlier where they will have Target Time work set. The register will be taken promptly at 8.45AM. At the end of the day children will leave at 3:15 and be escorted onto the front playground. We request that those collecting children come into the playground and not expect children to cross the road onto the green independently.

Learning

Autumn 1 & 2

*Click on the links below for your child's weekly spellings*

 

 

Green Group Spellings

Children in Green Group will be focusing on some trickier spellings with words from the year 5/6 statutory frame work woven in throughout.

 

Yellow Group Spellings

Children in Yellow Group will be focusing on a mixture of spellings including some from the year 5/6 statutory framework.

 

***All spellings for Green and Yellow Group are stored in a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet. Please use the tabs at the bottom of the page to go between the Autumn, Spring and Summer terms.***

 

 

Red Group Spellings

Children in Red group have 8 weekly spelling which have been created on Communicate and Print to help children's conceptual understanding of the words they are learning. Each week's spellings are a mixture of HFW (high frequency words) and those from a spelling category. You will notice that some HFW are repeated for a number of weeks, this is to help with the children's spelling memory for these words.

 

 

Timing/Homework

PE - PE lessons will be conducted on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their kit

Spellings - Out on Monday - Tested on Monday

Maths (Mathletics) - Out on Friday - In on Wednesday

English (SPaG.com) - Out on Friday - In on Wednesday

Reading - Children are expected to read most days for pleasure and I would recommend they read to an adult 3-4 times a week in order to discuss their understanding. 

We look forward to having a fantastic Autumn Term and seeing you all soon!
