Welcome to 4P

Curriculum

Each morning the children have sessions in Maths and Literacy.

Through our topic we learn History, Geography, Art and DT.

Each week we also have sessions in Science, ICT, RE, Music, PE and PSHE which are related to our topic when appropriate.

For more information on our topics this year, please see the link below.

PE

We have PE on a Wednesday afternoon. Please bring your child’s PE kit to school on a Monday and leave in school until Friday. PE kit should include black shorts and a white t-shirt for indoor PE and tracksuit bottoms, jumper/jacket and suitable shoes/trainers for outdoor PE. We are monitoring who has the correct clothes for PE.

Reading

Your child should have a book bag. We will provide the children with a reading book and home reading record. The children’s books will be changed once a week, when they have read at home and comments have been made in their home reading record. We are monitoring the amount of times your children read at home. Please ensure your child brings their book bag to school every day.

We use Bug Club to support our reading at home. Please go to https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login to access your child’s reading books. Log in details can be found in your child’s home school book.

 

Reading Challenge!

We challenge the children to read at home at least 4 times a week. Each Friday we count up how many times each child has read (from bug club and/or parent comments in their reading logs) Children that have read 4 or more times are recognised and celebrated.

Handwriting

We use letter join to support our handwriting development.

Please go to http://www.letterjoin.co.uk/ to log in. Log in details can be found in your child’s home school book.

 

Homework

My Maths homework will be set every Friday to be completed by the following Friday. Please see your child’s home school book for their log in details.

 

Behaviour

We operate a traffic light system to manage behaviour. The aim of the traffic lights is for the child to be in green. Children who display unacceptable behaviour will get a warning. If the child continues the unacceptable behaviour then they will be moved to the amber traffic light. If a child complies then their name goes straight back to green. A child continuing to display unacceptable behaviour will be placed on the red traffic light and will take ‘time out’ or even be removed from the classroom. A child can go straight from green to red if their behaviour is of a serious nature. Children that have stayed on the green traffic light all week will receive an excellence certificate for staying in green. Children who have stayed in green for the full half term will be rewarded.

 

Merits

Our school focuses on 6 main values: Listening, Respect, Honesty, Friendliness, Caring and Helpfulness. Each week, a child is chosen from each class to receive a certificate for displaying one of our school values. The children receiving these certificates are recognised and celebrated.

Red merits are given out every Friday to a child in each class for hard work and effort.

 

Seesaw

You can review your child’s work and progress using an APP called Seesaw. Each parent/child has their own log in which you can find in your child’s home school book.

 

If you have any worries, questions or problems, please do not hesitate to speak me.

Thank you.
