It is important that your child attends school regularly.
Homework will be given out on FRIDAY and should be returned by WEDNESDAY to celebrate our good work! Homework will consist of spelling practise, times tables practise, completing pages of their learning log and some maths problem solving.
Snack: your child has the opportunity to buy a healthy snack during morning break– fruit, water, cheese. Alternatively, they can bring a healthy snack in with them.
Trips: We will inform you in advance if we are going on a trip.
****Football and Cross County training – this is an exciting opportunity to do some training with Mr Arnold at lunch time, providing the children display good behaviour, complete all tasks in class and at home and these are handed in on time.****
Our class reward system is Class Dojos. Children can earn them for having a positive attitude towards their work, effort, a high standard of work, teamwork, caring for others, challenging themselves and many more. Children will be rewarded with prizes. However, class dojos can also be lost for unacceptable behaviour, lack of homework etc.
