Homework will usually be handed out on Friday. It should be handed in by Thursday morning.
Tables & mental maths tests are on Mondays. Spelling tests are on Fridays. Your child has been given a very detailed spelling test to see how they apply their learning so far. This will indicate which group they have been put into. The groupings are reviewed regularly and children can be moved up or down. The spellings will get harder as the year goes on. Encourage your child to neatly write out the list three times in pencil on the lined pages found in the homework folders. To aid their learning, we recommend that your child looks, covers, writes then checks each word.
IF FOR ANY REASON YOUR CHILD COULD NOT DO THE HOMEWORK – TOO HARD, TOO BUSY, WEEKEND AWAY ETC. - DO NOT PANIC!
Simply write a note in your child’s homework diary. Please send in the signed diary every Thursday for a member of staff to counter sign. Thank you.
HOME READING - Try to do this DAILY. Please sign the reading record daily, even if it is a book from home that your child has read to you. Listen to your child read for around 10 minutes and then talk about what they have just read. Teach your child to be a clue detective with all that they read!
PLEASE NOTE that all Peacock children will read from ther Brown level of our Home Reading Scheme throughout the year as we have a huge range of books to choose from.
PE- Every Tuesday & Friday for this half term. If your child has earrings, please make sure that they can take them out for PE. If they can’t take them out then please remove them before school or send your child to school with plasters to cover their ears.
Library – these will need to be returned on Wednesday mornings.
WATER BOTTLES – all children need to bring a water bottle to school to keep in class. It must have a pull up drinking cap on it. These will be sent home daily to be washed. Please return these every day. Children who bring packed lunches need to bring a separate drink to keep in the lunchbox.
CUSHIONS – your child may benefit from bringing a small cushion to school to put on his/her chair. This is so that writing will be easier & neater if the table level is lower.
