Teacher: Miss Duffy

Teaching Assistant:  Mrs. Stevenson

Mrs. Stevenson and I would like to welcome children and parents to our 4P webpage.  We are very excited to start the academic year with such a wonderful class and we can’t wait to provide a fantastic learning experience for our pupils.  We encourage partner and team work and as well as focusing on academic progress we ensure that our pupils are provided with the skills and knowledge to help them become fabulous little people! 

We very much like to work as a team with parents and enjoy sharing learning with you by using our Class Dojo App.  Please check this app daily for examples of classwork and activities that are taking place in our classroom and around the school.  We often check the app in class to promote a positive attitude to learning and it would be great to see some positive comments from adults.

In 4P we have high expectations for learning and behaviour and children who go over and above will be recognised and celebrated.  Let’s all work together and ensure pupils can achieve anything they choose to!

Things to remember:

Homework:  Homework is issued on a Tuesday and should be submitted by the following Tuesday.  Homework will be posted on the 4P Class Dojo page every Tuesday and also written in planners.  

In 4P we value any additional opportunity to enhance our learning and completing homework provides a great opportunity to consolidate learning that has taken place in the classroom.  Please encourage children to make themselves proud and complete tasks in the allocated timeframe.

Maths:  This year children will be using Mathletics and Times Table Rockstars for maths homework.  Logins will be recorded in planners.

Spellings:  Spellings will be issued on a Tuesday and recorded in planners.  A spelling test will take place the following Tuesday.  You can learn spellings in a variety of situations:  during breakfast, on the bus, at the park or even as part of a game!  This year we are using Spelling Shed.

Reading books:  Reading books will be allocated based on half termly accelerated reading scores.  Planners should be signed by an adult daily to show that children have read.

Children should be reading for at least 10 minutes every evening.  This can be to an adult, to a sibling or even out loud to the family pet!  Reading for this amount of time every day helps to enhance vovabulary, improves writing and provides children with the opportunity to make excellent progress in their reading this academic year. 

P.E. : This half term we will have a City in the Community session on Tuesday, every week.  Please ensure that children have the appropriate kit available.  This should stay in our classroom cupboard for the half term and will be sent home for the holidays.

Swimming:  Every Monday afternoon.  Please remember your kit every week.
