Below is some general information about our class, but if you would like to know more, or have any questions or concerns, as always, please contact me via Dojo or by ringing the main office and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
PE will be on Thursday afternoons but, if possible, please send your child;s PE kit in on a Monday and take it home on a Friday.
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 ideally read twice, usually in the form of a guided reading group with their class teacher and individually with a teaching assistant. There will be many other opportunities for reading through their Literacy lessons, spelling sessions and other curriculum subjects.
As previously mentioned 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.
Multiplication Tables Check (MTC)
Children in Year 4 will take part in the national online times table test up to,and including, 12 x 12 in May/June 2021. There are many online examples of this including on Times Table Rockstars - Sound Check, which replicates the MTC (almost) exactly.
More information on this will follow later in the term.
