Welcome back to a new term in Poplar class.
If you would like to talk to us at any time please do not hesitate to come and speak to us at the end of the school day or book an appointment with the office at a convenient time.
We are excited about sharing our learning with you on our class page. This term our topic is Castles. We look forward to sharing our work with you. Please click below for this term’s topic web.
Homework has been posted on the website. The homework menu gives you a choice of activities to complete which we will share together at the end of term.
Reading practice is essential to develop decoding, understanding and enjoyment of books. Please keep sharing books as well as hearing your child read regularly. By sharing and discussing books with your child at home this improves their reading and the comprehension of the texts that they share with you as well as being a great time to share together. We have new Africa-themed bookmarks so please make sure you sign these every time your child reads to you.
Children will continue to receive spellings each week, stuck into their homework books. Please support your child to practise their spellings at home in preparation for Spelling tests on Fridays.
Children will be doing PE on Mondays and Tuesdays. Your child should have their PE kit in school all week as it may be necessary to change days unexpectedly. Your child’s PE kit MUST include plimsolls or trainers – this term unless it is raining many PE lessons will be outside, so please also make sure that your child has a t-shirt, shorts and/or jog bottoms and a jumper for PE. Please make sure all items are named.
Please also make sure long hair is tied back and if your child has earrings they must either put tape (which you should provide) over their earrings for the PE session or be able to take out their own earrings.
