Going Places KS2 Topic Overview

 

P.E:

All children should have a P.E. kit in school which consists of:

  • red shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls for indoor P.E.
  • jogging bottoms, tracksuit top and trainers for outdoor P.E.

Your child’s P.E. days are Monday PM and Wednesday PM

Children need to have their kit in a labelled bag and please ensure that all pieces of clothing, including trainers and plimsolls, are named. If girls wear tights to school, they should have a pair of socks to wear with trainers.

No jewellery (earrings are not allowed to be taped over.)

Long hair needs to tied back (this is at all times).

Behaviour – Rewards & Sanctions

There is a school behaviour policy.

All the children are made aware of the school rules and the reasons that they are there.

At all times we try and focus on the positive aspects of children’s behaviour. As such, positive behaviour is rewarded in a variety of ways. The class CARE chart rewards individuals for demonstrating our core values (Collaboration, Aspiration, Resilience and Enjoyment). When the chart is full the class will be given a reward, which will have been decided with their input.

Homework:

Homework will be set every Thursday. This should be handed in on the following Wednesday.

Homework will consist of:

Reading Practice (aim to read 3 times a week)

Spelling Practice  (spelling pattern and common exception words)

My Maths (consolidating concept explored during the Maths lesson time)

Homework will be monitored by the class teacher.

Reading

It is important children are reading at home (at least 3 times a week – this being signed in the reading record). During this reading time children can practice fluency and answering questions about the text with an adult.

Reading journals are checked by an adult weekly and signed.

Any messages in reading journals, need to be handed to an adult to ensure messages are received. Alternatively notes can be written to the class teacher to ensure they arrive promptly.

We have parent helpers who hear children read therefore it is extremely important that all children have their reading books and journals every day.

Please remember if you have any questions or concerns we are happy to see you any day after school.

We look forward to the year ahead.
