Welcome to Shakespeare Class

I hope that you will find this information useful to support learning at home, and that it gives you an insight into the day to day learning that takes place within the classroom. Please feel free to contact me if there is anything that needs further explanation.

Here are a few pointers to ensure your child is organised for learning.

·         Shakespeare class pupils are welcome to bring their own pencil case to school. If they are ready to write in pen, this needs to be an ink pen, preferably blue. This does not have to be a fountain pen, a fibre handwriting pen is fine.

·         Pencil cases need to be able to fit into desk trays and to only contain what is needed. For example, glitter pens and scented   pens are not suitable for school.

·         PE kits should be in school at all times. Our PE sessions are on a Monday and Thursday afternoon.

·         Please can all pupils bring a named water bottle to school each day.

·         Homework is sent home on a Friday, to be returned the following Friday please.

·         New spellings are given out on Monday and will be tested on the following Monday. There will be opportunities to practise and consolidate these in class, but a few minutes practise each day at home will support learning further.

·         Times tables practise remains important.

·         Years 5 and 6 pupils should be reading for at least 20 minutes x 5 a week.

The onus is very much on the children to ensure they do their homework. However, if your child has difficulty with any aspects of homework please let me know, so that I can discuss this with them.

I am very much looking forward to a successful year with Shakespeare class pupils, and working together in this final phase of Primary school.
