Welcome to Beech Class

Teacher: Mrs Lambert

LSA: Mrs Mixture & Mrs Sparrow (1:1) and Mrs Turner (1:1).

Myself, Mrs Mixture, Mrs Turner and Mrs Sparrow all welcome you to Beech Tree Class!

Please find following some useful information:

Homework

Homework will be set on a Friday and will be due in on the following Thursday, when it will be marked.

Homework will consist of:

Spellings

Children will be given weekly spellings which will follow a pattern or work on strategies to learn spellings. Children will also work on Year 3 and 4 common exception words. Such spelling lists will be explored within class to further support their learning. Children will be tested weekly on their spellings.

Maths

An activity will be set on the skill we have been working on within class. This activity maybe set using MyMaths.

We would encourage children to work on their times tables. They will be tested weekly within class.

Reading

This forms part of the children’s weekly homework. It is expected that children read every day and their reading record is signed at least 3 times a week (5 if possible).

Each child will be competing in the whole school ‘Reading Olympics’ where they will receive medals, certificates and prizes the more they read at home.

50 reads – ‘Bronze’ – medal, certificate and book mark

100 reads – ‘Silver’ – medal, certificate and badge

200 reads – ‘Gold’ – medal, certificate and a book

We endeavour to hear the children read as much as possible in school, whether it is individually or part of our guided reading sessions and would appreciate your support at home with this.

Other Information

Behaviour

To develop our team work ethic the children will work together to earn a treat on the completion of our class CARE chart. To do this the children will be identified demonstrating CARE: Collaboration, Aspiration, Resilience or Enjoyment.

This half term children are working towards a football/basketball and dodgeball tournament.

Communication

You’re welcome to come and see me if you have any questions at the end of a school day or write a message within the reading record which is checked on a daily basis.

Snacks/Drinks

As we are a Healthy School, children are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle in every day and a healthy snack for break times. Snacks can also be purchased at a cost of 30p.
