Homework should be completed in your child’s red book.
Maths will be sent out weekly on Thursdays and is due in Wednesdays. Maths homework will be marked by the children in class so that feedback is immediate.
The children have a homework menu in the front of their books. These tasks should be completed by the end of term. The tasks will be marked at regular intervals. Awards will be given to the children who complete all of the tasks.
Spellings are sent out half termly and tests are on Mondays.
Please ensure your child always has a PE kit in school. Oak class have a PE lesson on Thursdays and Swimming on Monday at Beckenham Spa in the Autumn term.
Small pencil cases are welcome in class. They need to fit in your child’s tray. Useful equipment to have in class: a glue stick, a black and blue pen, a pencil, an eraser, a sharpener and a whiteboard pen.
To make good progress in reading, children should read for at least 20 minutes daily.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us on our class email addresses if you have any concerns or questions at email@example.com.
If you need to speak to us directly about anything, then after school when you pick your child up is the best time.
