Welcome to the Kangaroo and Wallabies Class Page
Mr Kelland and Miss Horler
Below is some useful information for the year:
Spellings are sent home weekly for your child to learn with a specific spelling rule. We appreciate your support with the learning of these spellings. Children will be tested on the spellings the following week.
Each child has been assigned a reading record. We encourage the children to read a variety of books and texts at home and record this in their records. Children will be awarded house points according to their reading completed that week.
All children can also access Times Table Rockstars, which will also help improve on their mental math skills. (We also access this in class on a Thursday morning.)
Weekly Times Table sheets will also be sent home to help improve our times table knowledge. They should complete 3 minutes only and return this along with their spelling book and reading record on a Monday.
Our PE day will be on a Thursday. These sessions will be delivered by TLE Sports Coaching and will cover a wide range of sporting activities.
We encourage the children to bring in a fresh labelled water bottle every morning as we will be having regular water breaks.
A healthy snack really helps your child with their learning and concentration, so please send one in each day. Alternatively, your child can purchase a snack through the canteen via your parent pay account.
Break times will be at 10.35am until 10.50am.
Lunch times will be at 12.30pm until 1.30pm.
