Welcome back to school - I hope everyone has had a fantastic Christmas break and wish you a very happy and healthy 2018.
The Spring Term timetable can be found within the 'In Class' section below. We will always try to adhere to it, however, there may be times when our weekly schedule changes - if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me via email: T.Pearson@helmdon.org
An overview of the year's curriculum and details of the subjects for each term can be found on the Key Information/ Curriculum page of this website.
At home, it is vital that you continue to read every day (discussing your reading with teachers in school or parents at home); learn weekly spellings and endeavour to use the words in your writing; and continue to practise your multiplication tables (and inverse division facts) - remember: you can use your log-in/password to compete against children all over the world via the TTRockstars website.
In class, we will be reading the novel 'Skellig' by David Almond. The children will be provided with their own copy (if anyone already has a copy at home, please let me know) and will be expected to keep up-to-date with the reading homework.
Homework will be set every week. Everyone will be expected to complete all tasks on/before the specified deadline. Homework Club will continue to run every Wednesday from 3.15-4pm, unless stated on the weekly School Newsletter.
In addition to weekly spelling tests, as a rule, the following will be set every week:
Reading (class reader): set Thursday, to be completed by the following Wednesday
Grammar: set Friday, to be completed by the following Wednesday
Maths: set Friday, to be completed by the following Thursday
If you need to speak to me, please use my email address - T.Pearson@helmdon.org - or pop in to the classroom before the start of the school day (Tuesday - Friday). I am also available at the end of the school day on Wednesdays (please note: this is the only whole day that I am in school).
Many thanks for your continued support!
