Miss Brock

Welcome back to school! 

Happy New Year to you all. I hope you had a lovely Christmas break and had lots of rest for our short but busy spring term.

Please see our blog for important updates and information.

 

Our topic this term is based on a local history study of Alderley Edge. 

Do you want to live life on the edge?

As part of our topic, we will read the text 'The Weirdstone of Brisingamen', which is based on the area and tells the Legend of Alderley!

These groups will work on a fortnightly basis up until Easter. The children may be given tasks to finish off or work on before the next session. 

These booster sessions run alongside all of the work we do during our weekly timetable, including booster groups, class based support and homework tasks. We will be running some lunch time booster groups as well as the groups after school. Where possible, I have assigned no more than 8 children in a group. 

There will also be four weeks of booster groups after the Easter holidays. 

I would like to thank parents for the continued support with homework and booster sessions. 

Please return all slips to school by Monday 15th January. 

Homework 

A copy of the homework grid for this term will be stuck into the diaries and will have a focus on our topic for this term. It can also be found under the 'homework' tab at the top of this page. 

The children will also be receiving weekly Maths and English homework with a focus on what we are working on in class. On a Monday maths will be sent home and is to be handed in on the following Thursday. Then English will come home Thursday and is to be handed in the following Monday. The children will have English and Maths homework books where they will record the task. The tasks will range from online games or challenges to written tasks. 

Spellings 

The children will be given weekly spellings with a focus of a rule or spelling pattern. A copy of each week's spellings will be uploaded to the 'spelling' tab at the top of this page. 

Reading 

The children are encouraged to read as much as possible at home and to keep a record of this in their diaries. we have a class library that the children can choose from or it can be a book they have from home. The diaries are signed weekly and I will be looking for a record of reading. There is also a section for parents to sign each week. 

There are also some suggested reading books for Year 6 children which can be found under the 'reading' tab at the top of this page. 

School Diaries 

Please remember to take your diaries home and bring them back to school every day. 

Water Bottles 

All children have been provided with a school water bottle where a donation of £1 will be put towards the running of the water filter machines. Water bottles should go home on a Friday for a wash and be returned back to school on a Monday. The water bottles will have fresh water every day. 

PE

Our PE sessions are on a Wednesday and Thursday. For this term we have Tag Rugby with Mr Slainey on a Wednesday and Mr Bentham on a Thursday. As the children will be using the field as much as possible, we have suggested that the children have a pair of tracksuit bottoms or leggings, to wear under their shorts, and a hoodie to keep them warm. 

Outdoor shoes and coats 

All children should have a pair of outdoor shoes and a coat in school for play times and lunch times.
