Pine Class

Welcome back to school after the summer holidays, we have a very exciting start to the year planned in Pine Class and I hope you are all as excited to get the year underway as I am!

This letter should provide you with information about the routines and timetable of term, but please feel free to ask any further questions you may have.

Routines and Timetable:

Children are expected to bring a labelled water bottle to school with them daily, these are kept on desks in the classroom to allow access to a drink throughout the school day. Planners are also expected to be brought and handed in daily along with the current reading book, these will be checked daily, so please use this as one method of communication between home and school, letting us know how well your child has read, if they are going home with someone different or if you just want us to know that your child has done something particularly special!

Homework will be recorded in the school planner, this will generally be sent home on a Wednesday or Thursday and will be due in on a Tuesday. However, from time to time there may be the need to set homework other times too. The school's homework policy states that at Key Stage 1 pupils are required to complete approximately 10 minutes of homework a night, this will mainly be reading. Additionally, a piece of writing or numeracy will also be set weekly. This can be given in a variety of ways to ensure that homework is not seen as a chore.

Please can you sign the school planner at the end of each week to acknowledge that you have seen any communications throughout the week.

PE this term will be on a Thursday including a variety of physical activities with our Sports Team, please can you ensure an appropriate PE kit is brought in to school at the start of the week, including t- shirt/jumper, shorts/jogging bottoms and trainers. This is to be taken home at the end of the week to be washed.

Our topic this term is ‘Space’, children are naturally curious and want to know about the world they live in. We feel it is important to encourage children to explore, ask questions and think about how our planet works and what's beyond it.  

Please see the weekly time table below, this is the usual class schedule, but on occasions we may deviate from this.
