Welcome to Class 13

Our class teacher is Mrs Toal, and our teaching assistant is Miss Kenneally.

We have PE on Monday and Friday each week, so a full PE kit (white shorts, white t-
shirt and trainers) should be in school on these days. Tracksuits are permitted when
the weather turns colder.

Homework is set every Monday (in a homework book) which must be completed to
the highest possible standard and returned every Friday.
Spellings are practised daily (5 per day) in class with a full spelling test administered
every Friday. Spelling books have been given with these spellings, so please ensure
they are practised each evening at home (Mon-Thurs).

A knowledge quiz is held every Friday based on homework tasks assigned in
science and one other topic (also in the main homework book).  Each week the quiz
starts with questions from previous weeks to promote long-term knowledge retention,
so please remind your child to recap on prior learning as well as that for the current
week.

Reading is hugely important, therefore an Accelerated Reading book and a Colour
Band book are brought home each day in your child’s book bag with their Reading
Record. We recommend a minimum of 20 minutes reading per night and the pages
read should be logged in the reading record.  Accelerated Reading quizzes are to be
taken in class upon completion of each book (at least once a week), aiming for
100%.

Children should bring a full water bottle (labelled with their name) to school each day
(only water is allowed – not juice or pop).
