Green Class 2018 - 2019

Mr Greasby

Green Class Teacher

Hello All!

 

May I take this opportunity to welcome you to Green class and to what will no doubt be a very busy, exciting and enjoyable year ahead. I hope that your child is as enthusiastic as I am and are looking forward to continuing on their adventure at Pear Tree!

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.

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

  • Daily reading (for at least 20 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 hearing your child read is actively encouraged throughout Green 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.

The Curriculum

The curriculum for the first term will be readily available through the Green Class Cloudy Overview. Our topic until Christmas is the Rampaging Romans, with us travelling as far back as Ancient Egypt in the second term, then comparing the history and geography of Nantwich to the Welsh seaside town of Llandudno during the Summer term. 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 has their P.E. kit in school, clearly labelled in a bag, every Monday. Green class will be taking part in P.E. lessons on Mondays and Fridays. There may be occasions when the days may change due to a flexible timetable, so it is important that kit remains in all week.

We already have a number of exciting trips booked for your child this term, the first of which is to Brine Leas on Thursday 4th October to take part in the first of the ‘mass rehearsals’ for this year’s Singfest. The following week on Friday 12th October, we are visiting the Grosvenor Museum in Chester for a Roman Experience day! Please ensure that your child’s Blue Diary is signed on the appropriate page as permission for them to attend local visits into Nantwich.

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 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.

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
