General Class Information

Reading: Each week, the children read a range of text through their learning. They also take part in Guided Reading where they are heard to read by the teacher and their reading and comprehension skills are developed. We also Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) on a Wednesday where we read our library book which is then changed on a Thursday.

Home reading is to practice and consolidate their fluency, expression and comprehension. Please can you let us know how your child has got on with their reading book using the reading record. We would like you to write a comment each time and hear your child read at least 3 times per week.

Teaching assistants help the children to change their book on Tuesday and we do not have allocated time to do this on a different day so it is important that your child returns their book. We will not change a home reading book unless there is a comment from you in the reading record. If we do not have a comment or a book is not returned on the correct day for two weeks Mrs Sullivan, our English curriculum leader, will contact you.

Homework: Homework letters are sent every week explaining the homework and are also found on this page. To encourage learning at home children who return completed homework on the following Monday will receive one dojo point. In the best interest of your child if homework is not complete by the following Wednesday your child will miss one break in order to catch up on incomplete work. We appreciate your continued support with this.

PE: PE is twice a week on a Thursday. Your child will participate in a dance lesson and sports lesson every week. It is expected for them to have a full PE kit kept in school at all times. We wanted to explain that during PE on Thursdays children should not be wearing any jewellery, this does include earrings. If your child does wear earrings, please could you ensure they are taken out before school on Thursdays please.

We sometimes have opportunities for other active learning and so a PE kit should be in school every day.

Targets: Targets are sent home every half term. Please work through these targets with your child.

Please come and speak to Mrs Oldham, Miss Owen, Mr Humphreys or Mrs Clare if you have any questions or e-mail boldham@victoriousacademies.org or vowen@victoriousacademies.org using the link above.
