Throughout all of our topics we link in as many different subject areas as possible (eg: Art, DT, music) to create a cross curricular approach to learning.
Useful things to remember:
- PE kits are to be kept in school for the whole half term. If you are part of an after school club, please bring a spare kit on this day. Initially, our PE sessions will be on Friday afternoons until February half term. After February half term, we will continue to have PE on a Friday afternoon and will also have PE on a Tuesday morning.
- From September until February half term, you will need your swimming kit every Thursday morning. Please remember this is a one piece costume for girls and tight/fitted trunks for boys. No jewellery is to be worn and long hair needs to be tied back.
- Maths and English homework will be set on alternate weeks with a clear hand in date.
- Topic homework will be the form of a pre-learning task for our topics or project based. We will ensure the date is written on the homework as to when this needs to be handed in.
- Times Table Rockstars/ Read Theory – please practise these every week at home.
