Blue Class 2021 - 2022

Mr Greasby

Blue Class Teacher

Hello All!

 

Hello All!

 

I hope you have had a fantastic summer break and that you are ready to go for an exciting year together! Throughout the year, we shall explore all that Blue Class has to offer and we shall share many enjoyable experiences along the way.

For your information, please find below details of your child’s home learning tasks and topics planned for this year, which I hope will help you to support your child in the best possible way. All homework tasks are intended to benefit your child’s learning, by consolidating work done in school and encouraging them to work more independently at home.

Home Learning and Student Diaries

Your child will be given a Home Learning book in which homework details will be recorded. If for any reason your child is unable to complete a home learning task, please let me know. Home Learning will be sent home with your child on a Friday to be returned by the following Thursday.

Home Learning should be completed to the same standard of presentation that is expected in school.

The more your child can engage with this, the better, as it builds on learning from throughout the week in school.

In Blue class, your child will receive regular home learning tasks in accordance with the school’s policy. This will include:

  • Daily reading (for at least 30 minutes)
  • Weekly spellings will now be learnt in school
  • Daily TimesTable Rockstars (10 minutes)
  • A weekly Maths or English task (set on a Friday to be returned by the following Thursday) or a home learning task associated with our termly topic.

Times Tables must be learnt fluently and with rapid recall, both for multiplication and division number facts.

 

Reading Records

Your involvement in continuing to hear your child read is actively encouraged throughout Blue Class. Your child has been given a reading record. It would be much appreciated if you could sign this when you have listened to your child read, alongside a comment from you or your child. Engaging your child in discussion about what they are reading will greatly benefit them as they progress throughout Key Stage 2.

Your child’s comments must be relevant and make reference to either something that they have read or an opinion about the text.

The Curriculum

The curriculum for the first half term is readily available through the Blue Class Website. Our topic until Christmas is Early Civilisations, with us travelling as far back as Ancient Greece in the second term, then exploring the depths of Oceans in the Summer term looking at Watery Worlds. Our topics will include work based in the subjects of Literacy, History, Geography, Art and Design & Technology.

Blue Class will be taking part in P.E. lessons on Tuesdays and Fridays. There may be occasions when the days may change due to a flexible timetable but you will be notified if this is the case. Please continue to send your child into school in PE kit on these days. May I ask you to ensure all P.E. kit and school uniform is clearly labelled – this saves a lot of time and money when items get misplaced!

Throughout this year, we hope to invite your child on a number of exciting trips. We keep everything crossed that we will be able to run our residential trip to the Conway Centre, for 2 nights, in April/May 2022. You will be kept up to date with developments of this residential as soon as information if received by the school. We are in the process of looking for a suitable trip this term to support our topic of Early Civilisations, with the hope of your child’s learning being stimulated by studying real artefacts.

Please ensure that your child’s Blue Diary is signed on the appropriate page as permission for them to attend local visits into Nantwich.

Lunch boxes and water bottles

May I also remind you that your child should have a water bottle for use in class and for break / lunch time. Your child has been allocated a locker for them to keep their belongings in throughout the school day and shall have access to it whenever they may need it. Please ensure all lunch boxes and water bottles are labelled clearly.

Finally, please do not send your child in with a pencil case as we have everything they may need in school already.

Many thanks for your co-operation and support and I look forward to the year ahead. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or concerns.

Yours sincerely,

 

Mr M. Greasby
