This year I will be using ClassDojo to communicate with parents. I will post regular updates and appropriate information. Please let me know if you have any trouble using this app.
We value support for reading as our main homework focus. In addition your child will be given phonics homework in their book to complete at home each week. There will also be an open ended homework challenge for children to complete, based on their learning from the week. Homework books are given out on a Friday. Please remember to return your child's homework book by the following Wednesday. We look forward to seeing the work you do at home.
PE days for the Autumn term are:
Indoor PE: Thursday afternoon
Outdoor PE: Tuesday afternoon
Please ensure children have the appropriate PE kit to participate in PE lessons - it would be useful for children to have their PE kit available in school throughout the week not just on PE days. Children who do not have a PE kit on their PE day will be given an active task to complete to ensure they do not miss their entitlement to physical activity. Please can you ensure your child has shorts, red or white t-shirt and pumps or trainers. Please note that jewellery should not be worn for P.E. lessons. Children with earrings need to have these removed on PE days.
At Treeton C of E Primary we see reading as a priority as it is a vital skill for life. Once children have mastered the basics of decoding words it is important that they continue to read regularly both in school and at home to build up fluency and confidence. They also need to develop a deeper understanding of the texts they read by asking and answering questions.
We read with your child on many occasions each week in school. Each week your child will read in a guided reading group with their class teacher and individually with their teaching assistant. There will be many other opportunities for reading through their Literacy lessons and daily phonic sessions.
Reading is still the main focus for homework and we ask that you make time to read with your child three times a week. We check reading diaries each week and award stickers for reading 3 times at home.
If you have any questions about how we teach reading or what you can do at home to support your child's reading please feel free to ask. Thank you to everyone who has supported us with the reading initiative so far. Rewards will be announced at the end of term.
