Daily / Weekly Routines:
Please note that for health and safety reasons children must remove all jewellery for PE sessions. This includes stud earrings so it is advisable for your child to avoid wearing earrings on PE days.
Home – School Learning:
Reading – At Dean Hole C of E Primary School, we really value the power of reading and how reading will help you to ‘magpie’ new vocabulary, figurative language and story ideas, to become a confident and skilled writer. Your child will be issued with a reading diary where you will be able to record your comments about your child’s reading. In order for your child to benefit from this, there is an expectation that children read at least three times a week and ask that an adult signs the record to confirm this has been completed.
We are looking out for ‘Remarkable Readers’! A remarkable reader is a child who reads at least 3 times a week at home to get a stamp in their reading record. After every 5 stamps, children will receive a remarkable reader prize.
Homework will be sent home on a Friday and all homework should be due in on the following Wednesday. Children are encouraged to bring their homework in as they complete it. Homework will be varied and may include a Maths / English / Science / Research activity.
Spellings –These will be sent home on a Friday every week and your child will be asked to learn spellings involving a particular spelling rule, ready for a weekly test. On occasions, your child will be asked to learn tricky words which do not easily follow a spelling rule/pattern. These words and spelling patterns are taken from the National Curriculum.
