Keeping in contact
There are formal opportunities during the school year to meet with class teachers but as and when issues come to light all Key Stage 1 staff are available, before and after school. Staff love to share snippets of success with those adults who are important to our children so we encourage parents and carers not to be strangers!
If you want to get in touch and don't have time to pop in for a chat, you can contact Miss Thornbery via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Home learning in Key Stage 1
Children who are on the Read Write Inc phonics programme will each have a reading pack which contains the following: a copy of the text that they are currently working on in class to practise at home, a copy of the text that they worked on the previous week to practise at home and a 'read together' picture book that they have chosen themselves to enjoy with an adult. Children who have moved on to the Literacy and Language programme have a reading book from our scheme that they take home daily and we ask parents to hear their children read ‘little and often’.
On Mondays children take home a piece of Home Learning linked to our learning in school. This piece of work should be returned by Thursday. Children receive Super Saver points for remembering to do this! On a Monday Year 2 children take home their ‘Going For Gold’ books. They should practise their number bonds or times tables frequently during the week and bring their book into school on Friday to be quizzed! You can find out more about Going for Gold in our maths curriculum area.
We offer Home Learning Club to all pupils on a Tuesday after school. Places can be booked via the Gateway App.
