Homework- due in Thursday 23rd May

Your challenge is to research and create Stonehenge. in whatever medium you would like. The model should be clearly labelled and a short explanation about what Stonehenge is should accompany your model.

Parents are invited to view these in the classroom, at drop off, on Thursday 23rd May at the start of our Stone Age day.


What can I do at home to support my child?

By the end of the week, each child will have a Home/School folder, reading diary and banded reading book. These should be in school every day and checked regularly as they enable us to send home any letters or children’s homework safely. Our expectation for reading is that the children should read daily and record their reading in their record twice a week. This may include what happened in the chapter, which part/ character they enjoyed and should be completed alongside an adult to encourage writing in full sentences. A book review should be completed in the record once a term. Reading records will be checked weekly by Mrs Yorkshades and feedback given where appropriate.

What is the best way to communicate with school?

We will be using the Class Dojo system again this year. Please ensure, that you are signed up to use this; if you are not already signed up, please let us know and we can email an invite to you. The Dojo System is a great way for us to communicate with you and keep you informed about your child’s activities and achievements. We ask that you use the message facility to inform us of any appointments, changes to pick up arrangements or any specific information about your child. Absences and urgent messages only should be communicated with the office. We will check our message folder before school starts and again at lunchtime.
