Welcome to Saturn Class

Welcome to Class Saturn. We had a very busy Spring Term and are looking forward to an exciting Summer one.

 

Homework has been set and can be found on the link at the bottom of the page. It is to make a Greek shield and research information about Greek soldiers. Maths will continue to be set using the My Maths learning platform. Reading books are sent home every night and should be brought back into school the following day – please listen and sign off reading in the planners so your child moves up our reading ladder. It is still very important to listen to your child read so that they can feel confident and enjoy reading.

 

P.E will take place on Monday with myself and Tuesday with Mr Wood. A kit for both indoor and outdoor is essential! Please remember that children with pierced ears should remove earrings for P.E days, unless they can remove them themselves prior to the lesson.

 

It is also important to encourage children to continue practising basic maths skills, like times tables and quick real life calculations. Number Gym (User Name: barlbyb Password: y085aa the children have their unique login in their planners) and the Sumdog (own passwords) website can make learning these skills more fun! There is also the Oxford Owl website where the children can read on-line books free of charge. Again the children have all the pass words they need written into their planners

 

Please send water bottles into school with your child. These should be sports top bottles (to avoid spillages.) They help the children to concentrate and stay focused. 

Thank you for your continuing support. Looking forward to continuing a great year all the way to the end of July

 

Yours faithfully

Mr Chappell
