Please correct your child's mistakes. This is an opportunity to consolidate work in class and in some cases to correct misconceptions. Please make a note if your child really struggled. However a challenge is also healthy!
Do you have Speakers Corner?
Yes we do and timetables will be up on our class page very soon.
We would be more than happy for you to encourage children to write in their record books. We will also encourage this in class. Reading at home needs to now be for enjoyment hence why we allow them to select their own books (although we are there to support). At school and as part of homework, comprehension is continually taught and practised so the reading of the chosen home school text can be used to focus on continuing to develop reading stamina and enjoyment of the text. We will have task suggestions stuck into record books for the children to do once they've finished a book. This can be done with or without support and mentioned in record book.
Do you differentiate Mental maths test?
Mental maths tests are in the same format as SATs and therefore are not differentiated by sheet but by questions. There are a variety of styles of questions to suit all. It is important to practise the same format in preparation for SATs.
Scratch is taught as a class and log in details will be shared below for children to practise at home. Class teachers lead every session however animation due to resources is taught in class by specialists who bring in their own cameras and stands for the session to be taught at its best.
