General Expectations, Rewards and Sanctions

As with other year groups, we expect all children to try their best and work hard in the classroom and in lessons.

 

We always encourage the children to treat each other, and all adults, with respect and kindness. In accordance with the rest of the school, we follow the behaviour policy whereby positive behaviours are rewarded and negative behaviours sanctioned in a way appropriate to Key Stage Two.


Please see the on-line behaviour policy for further details.

 

We will continue to encourage greater independence and responsibility and hope that you will also support your child in achieving this. Although we expect a great deal from your child, we offer a huge amount of praise and recognition for effort, achievement and good behaviour as well.

 

Reading Records

Reading records and reading books are expected to be in school every day. During a week, a child is expected to complete at least 3 reads at home and have their reading record signed by an adult on each occasion. The reading record will be checked each Thursday and if there are 3 reads signed in the reading record then the child will receive a reading raffle ticket. 

 

Home Learning

Home learning will go home every week on a Thursday. It needs to be completed and returned by the following Tuesday. Home learning will alternate half-termly:

Spring 1 - one piece of Maths Homework accompanied by eight spellings to learn.

 

English

Within the English curriculum, the children will be taught reading, writing, speaking & listening and spelling & grammar (SPAG) skills. This will include: letters, sounds, spelling rules and grammar, sentence structure and punctuation, understanding of whole texts and meaning, handwriting (cursive script), writing for different audiences and purposes, and reading of different styles of texts. We encourage the children to be reading and writing as much as possible and any opportunities that you may find at home would also greatly benefit their learning.

 

Maths

Within the Mathematics curriculum, children will be taught a range of skills, including: mental and written strategies for solving problems, number patterns, addition and subtraction, multiplication and times tables, division, shape, measure (time, length, weight and capacity) and data handling. Children will have a variety of opportunities to apply their reasoning and fluency within mathematics through a range of practical and problem solving activities. They will also be learning how to apply their mental skills in arithmetic.

 

Topic

This term we will be learning about World War II through our Topic and English lessons. Please see the Topic Web for an overview of what we will be covering in each subject.
