Blue Class 2020 - 2021

Mr Greasby

Blue Class Teacher

 

Hello All!

 

Welcome to 2021! I hope you have had a fantastic Christmas break and that you are ready to go for another term in Blue Class!

For your information, please find below details of your child’s homework tasks and topics planned for this term, 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

As with last term, your child will continue to be given weekly Home Learning. If for any reason your child is unable to complete a home learning task, please let me know. Communication with this worked brilliantly last term, thank you.

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

It is so important this term that your child continues with:

  • Daily reading (for at least 30 minutes)
  • Weekly spellings (Set on a Wednesday to be learnt for a test the following Wednesday).
  • Daily TimesTable Rockstars (for at least 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. It would be much appreciated if you could sign this when you have listened to your child read, alongside a comment from them. 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, an opinion about the text or a prediction about what they think will happen next.

 

The Curriculum

The curriculum for the second term is readily available through the Blue Class Website. Our topic until Easter is the Ancient Greeks. Our main text shall be: Who Let The Gods Out? By Maz Evans, which allows us to really draw comparisons between Greek Mythology and current life. 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 Mondays and Tuesdays. There may be occasions when the days may change due to a flexible timetable but you will be notified if this is the case.

The class will be taking part in a weekly guitar lesson, provided for us by Music for Life. Your child will be given a guitar to use that will be labelled and will remain in school.

 

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 to keep their belongings in throughout the school day and has access to it whenever they may need it.

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

Yours sincerely,

 

Mr M. Greasby
