Welcome to Saturn Class!
The adults that work in this class are Miss Ward and Miss Torode
The Vicious Vikings have settled in our class this term! Please see our curriculum newsletter above for more information as to what your child will be learning throughout the term.
The learning and recalling of multiplication facts is an area that needs constant revision as it will enable your child to access other areas of the maths curriculum. There are many ways to do this, one being the use of TT Rockstars which your child has a login to. This is a fun and interactive way for your child to engage in maths by earning coins to edit their avatar.
Our P.E sessions will take place on a Wednesday morning and Friday afternoon. Please ensure that PE kit is in school throughout the week as there may be other opportunities where kit is required.
Your children will have weekly spellings which will be taught to them during daily spelling lessons but to further their learning, practicing at home will ensure the rules and patterns are secure. They will be tested at the end of the week and their book will be sent home so you can see how well they have progressed and any misconceptions that have arisen.
In addition to spellings, weekly maths homework, which consolidates learning completed in class, will be set. This will be handed out on Friday to be handed in by Wednesday. If there are any concerns regarding the task, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our class.
Research suggests that the more reading and exposer to words and language a child receives, the higher the attainment and progress will be. It is suggested that a child reads 5 times a week for 20 minutes, however, any reading that can be done will improve your child’s vocabulary. They can read a variety of texts and books including ones from the school library and we kindly request that you record any reading into your child’s Home learning/reading record so we can celebrate and reward their effort. Any queries, again, please contact a member of our team.
Anything that you can do with your child, even if it is asking them what they did at school today, will enable them to secure their learning and share their experiences with you.
