As ever, if you have any worries or questions relating to your child and need a little more time, please do not hesitate to arrange a time to talk. It is important for us all that your children are happy at school, so please keep us informed of any concerns, no matter how small. You can contact me via email:Rdobson@stmaryswrithlington.co.uk
May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support.
This term, I will be setting a project for each child to work on independently each week. In the final week of term they will use all of their knowledge and the research they've completed over the term to deliver a short presentation to the class about their chosen subject.
Spellings will be given on a Monday for a test on the Friday of that week as well as a piece of English or Maths homework which will alternate weekly.
To help develop children’s fluency in mathematics, we ask them to learn Key Instant Recall Facts each half term. We expect children to practise their KIRFs at least 3 times a week.
We have created these lists of KIRFs to align with the new curriculum. They are intended to be challenging but will be supported in class to learn them and use them to apply to their mathematics learning.
Please continue to hear your child read and sign their reading record. :)
Our regular PE days will be every Wednesday (swimming). As usual, children are to wear their PE kit in to school on these days to save changing. The PE kit should include a school burgundy t-shirt, black shorts/leggings and daps for outdoor activities. PE kit can be purchased online at: https://gooddies.co.uk
