Welcome To Barasingha Class - March 2021
Hello and welcome to the Barasingha Class page.
We really are extremely excited to be welcoming all of Barasingha class back into the classroom. As teachers we are so pleased to finally be able to have full classes again, and we will be spending the first few weeks gently reminding children of school routines, assessing where each child is working at and reintroducing them to lessons. We have lots of exciting learning and opportunities lined up, which we are sure they will all enjoy. Currently, our class will start school at 8:50 am and finish at 3:15 pm, to avoid overcrowding in the collection points. Please do look out for any ParentMails or letters that are sent out during the term for any changes to this.
Reading at home is vital and daily reading will help your child to progress and access all areas of the curriculum. It is also an opportunity for your child to relax, unwind and experience the world beyond their own experiences. Your child will be given a reading book which they can take home to read. Once the book is read, or if your child decides they don’t like the book, they will be able to change it. All books that are brought back to school will be ‘quarantined’ before being put back onto the shelf for someone else to read. Please only transfer the school reading books to and from school; no home books are to be brought in at this time.
In Year 4, we have a big push on times tables, so as much practise at home as possible would be brilliant! By the end of Year 4 it is expected that children are able to recall multiplication and division facts for all times tables up to 12x12. We have lots of apps and websites that the children know how to use to help aid their learning. Please ask if you need any reminders about logins.
PE days will be communicated throughout the year. For Terms 4 and 5 they are on Mondays and Tuesdays and on these days pupils will need to come to school in their PE kit. Please ensure your child has suitable clothing for outdoor PE on these days as we will be outside as much as possible for PE lessons. These days may change throughout the year but these changes will be communicated if and when they happen.
Please get in touch with us via email or phone the office. We are always hear to help and answer any questions you may have.
Mr Togher, Mrs Litten, Mrs Bell and Mrs Nix
