We are Silver Birch Class. We have 22 children in our class. The teachers in our class are: Miss Child, Mrs Rafiq and Mrs Patel.
What you need to know
Children will take part in one Guided Reading lesson each week. However, reading books will be changed every two weeks. This allows us to explore the books in detail, to develop our comprehension skills. Each child has a reading diary which will be updated each week with reading challenges linked to their guided reading book. Please ensure you discuss the challenges with your children, as well as signing their reading diary.
Children will also take home a library book each week, which they will choose from the school library area. Please ensure that your child brings their book bag to school every day, as we encourage reading whenever possible.
Our P.E. days for this half term are Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit in school on this day. PE kit includes: a white T shirt, navy or black jogging bottoms/shorts and a pair of pumps. It is also important that your child does not wear any jewellery during PE.
Each half term a 'Homework Challenge' sheet will be sent home. This will contain 6 or more challenges that link into the current topic we are studying. You can then select one challenge to complete per weekend. The majority of this work should be completed by the child, with support and guidance given from adults at home. Don't forget to bring your homework challenges back with you on Monday morning, so your work can be shared with everyone in our class!
Spellings will also be sent home on a weekly basis. Please practise reading and spelling these words at home as much as possible, in preparation for Spelling Quiz the following week.
