Welcome back to Barley Class!
A very warm welcome to Barley Class. We have had a great week settling back into school and getting used to our new timetable and routines. The children have enjoyed getting to grips with our dramatic new class book - The King of the Cloud Forests by Michael Morpurgo. They are also already researching famous mountains around the world and are excited to present their findings to their peers in the coming weeks.
Homework this year consists of weekly spelling learning, I hope you have had chance to see your child's new spelling book, and regular reading to an adult remains a priority. The learning of times tables up to 12 x 12 is also a key learning outcome for this year. Children will be practising their tables daily in class, however, any practise that you can do at home would also be beneficial. This could include logging onto T.T. Rock stars but could be as simple as quizzing your children over dinner - just ask them which table they have been practising first.
P.E. days are Wednesday and Thursday - please continue to send your child in P.E. kit on these days.
Mr Wickstead :)
