Every Monday, the children will take part in a weekly swimming lesson. They will either be taught by their class teacher, or a qualified instructor.
Please ensure they have the following:
Swimming costume (no bikini's) or swimming trunks
Goggles if needed
Homework and Reading Books
Each week, the children will be set a piece of homework. They will be expected to complete it to a high standard, taking between 40-60 minutes. They will also be given weekly spellings, to be learnt for the following week. Homework Club will be at lunchtimes during the week, so if any help is needed, they can visit.
Homework will be given out every Thursday, to be returned on the following Wednesday.
Every few weeks, the children will be given a 'Brain Buster.' This will be an open ended question, that they will respond to, as creatively as they wish. It could be a written answer, a poster, a song, a baked treat, a 3D model.... the possibilities are endless!
Each child will be given a reading book and record during the first few weeks. Your child needs to aim to read their reading book during the week, ready for their class teacher to check it on a Friday. If it is a particularly long book, they should aim to read at least 3 times during the week, for around 20 minutes each.
