We are really looking forward to seeing you in school on Thursday 2nd September. We hope that you have had a lovely summer break and that you have managed to get some rest too.
You will need to arrive at school at 8.40am for an 8:45am start and the school day will finish at 3pm. You are welcome to bring a piece of fruit or another type of healthy snack to eat at morning break time. This will help to increase your energy levels for our learning after play. You will also need a named water bottle.
During Term 1, we will have P.E. on a Tuesday and Wednesday. On these days, you will be required to come to school in your P.E. kit, which you will stay in for the whole day. Remember that you are not allowed to wear any jewellery during P.E. lessons, so you must be prepared to remove it (ideally, please leave it at home). P.E., on a Tuesday, will be hockey led by the Dauntsey’s Outreach Programme and on a Wednesday you will take part in OAA with Mr. Herring. OAA stands for Outdoor Adventurous Activities and includes perseverance, team tasks and orienteering.
In Owls, you will have weekly SPaG, Spelling and Maths homework and daily reading homework. SPaG and Spelling homework is to be handed in on a Monday and you will also have your weekly spelling test on a Monday. Maths homework is to be handed in on Thursday. It is also important to practise your times tables (multiplication and division facts) daily and we have our Times Table Mountain Quiz every Friday. Reading is a very important skill and one that we need to keep practising. It is important that you read regularly at home to an adult from both fiction and non-fiction texts. Your parent or carer will need to sign your homework diary each time you read. You will be able to choose a reading book from school, which you can log and borrow to take home.
Please see the learning curriculum map to find out what exciting knowledge and skills we will be working on this term.
We look forward to seeing you soon,
Mrs Groves, Mrs Leese and Mrs Marshall
