Which adults work in the classroom?
Mrs Connolly (TA)
Which days will my child need their PE kit?
Monday and Friday
How is homework organised?
Homework is now focussed around spellings, home reading and Numbots. All homework will be sent on a Friday and be returned the following Friday. Children will have an independent read and a shared read. The independent reading book needs to be heard every night if possible with the shared read being read once or twice. At other points in the half term optional homework and/or activities may be handed out but they will be given on paper. Please post pictures on Google Classroom or Twitter @broadwayprimary.
What reading should my child be doing each week?
Your child should be reading at least four times per week. They have access to an Independent reading book from the teacher and also a ‘Shared’ Reading book. The independent books may seem basic to parents but Government guidance states that books the children are reading cannot contain any sounds they do not know or have been taught. The shared read is given to promote reading for pleasure. I do not expect your child to read the ‘shared read’ alone, it is more something that you can look at and discuss together. Any reading that is completed needs to be entered on our online reading record system: Boom Reader
How will spellings be sent home and what should I do with them?
Spellings would be available on Friday. It is expected that they write each word out three times and the practise using ‘Look, Cover, Write, Check’. The children will also write three of the spellings in sentences.
What topics will my child be enjoying?
Autumn term – Where do Owls Live?
How can I contact my class teacher?
Please telephone school to arrange an appointment for either a visit or phonecall.
Alternatively email the teacher – please note that emails will not be responded to after 6pm.
What trips/visitors will my child be doing?
No trips are currently planned this half term.
Who do I contact if I have a problem?
