Blue Class 2020 - 2021

Mr Greasby

Blue Class Teacher

 

Hello All!

 

I hope you have had a fantastic summer break and that you are ready to go for the year ahead together! This year, we explore the excitement that Blue Class has to offer and we shall share many enjoyable opportunities along the way.

For your information, please find below details of your child’s homework 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. Please ensure that this remains neat and in a respectable condition as a school book would.

In Blue class, you 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 (Set on a Tuesday to be learnt for a test the following Tuesday).
  • 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.

 

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 your child. This gives your child added responsibility to evidence that they have read daily. Engaging your child in discussions about what they are reading will greatly benefit them as they progress throughout Key Stage 2.

 

The Curriculum

The curriculum for the first term will be readily available through the Blue Class Website. Our topic until Christmas is Early Civilisations, with us then travelling to Ancient Greece in the second term, and finally 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.

 

May I ask you to ensure your child wears their P.E. kit to school on a Monday and a Friday and that everything is clearly labelled. Blue Class will be taking part in P.E. lessons on these two days. There may be occasions when the days may change due to a flexible timetable, however, I shall let you know in advance if this is the case.

 

It is hoped that later on in the academic year your child will be invited on school trips, most noticeably to the Conway Centre, for 2 nights, in April 2021. We keep our fingers crossed that we will be able to go on this trip. As a school we will keep you informed on any developments that we receive regarding this. We are in the process of looking for a suitable visit this term to support our topic of Early Civilisations, with the hope of your child’s learning being stimulated by studying real artefacts. This is likely to be a company visiting our school rather than a visit out.

 

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

If your child is bringing their own lunch, please send this in a disposable bag only. This helps reduce items coming and going into school and home again.

 

Finally, 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 a tray beneath their table for them to tidily keep their belongings in throughout the school day and shall have access to it whenever they may need it. 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
