Welcome to Class 8. Here is some important information about our class.
The children will need to bring a coat to school every day, which will withstand light rain.
We have P.E. lessons on Thursday afternoons. For this first half term (until Christmas), we will be going swimming on Monday afternoons to Yearsley swimming pool.
Please check that your child has a full P.E kit including socks, a white t-shirt, black shorts and plimsolls, as trainers are unsuitable for our gym; everything should have their name on. If your child wears earrings, it is school policy that these are either removed or covered for P.E. lessons. Please either teach them to do this themselves or remove them before they come to school that day, as we are not allowed to do it for them. Please also make sure that your child brings a bobble on PE days if they have long hair.
We will hear children read in groups and individually regularly in class. They will be given a Racing Readers Sheet at the beginning of each half term which should be brought into school at the end of the half term. We would be grateful if you could hear your child read regularly and sign the sheet once a week.
You will receive an access code for Bloomz which will enable you to view your child’s class Bloomz page. On here we will post homework updates and photos of activities taking place in class.
The children have the opportunity to change their library book each Monday afternoon. The children will only be permitted to take a new book home if they return their current book.
Good work Assemblies
We have a Good Work Assembly every Friday at 9.00am. Each week we select a few children from the class to show their work. If your child is chosen they will be given a letter on the previous Friday and then presented with the Good Work certificate within the assembly. Parents are very welcome to come and watch but we understand many of you work so don’t worry if you can’t make it. These assemblies will last approximately 30 minutes.
If your child has been awarded a certificate for an activity they have done outside of school, e.g. swimming, they can be given to Mr Mastrelli and these will be presented in the KS2 assembly.
We would appreciate payment via ‘ParentPay’ for school dinners (£2.20 per day). However if you prefer to pay by cash or cheque please send dinner money for the week on a Monday morning in an envelope with your child’s name on and which days they would like school dinners. If you wish you are welcome to pay for several weeks at a time.
We would like to reduce the amount of lost property we accumulate in school. To help us reunite children with lost clothes it is essential they have names on all items of clothing. Please help us by labelling all of your child’s property, including P.E. bags, kits and pack up boxes.
