At the start of the academic year, each class are asked to choose 5 rules that their class should adhere to throughout the school year. In September, the children in Penguin Class chose the following for their class code:
Our class code also underpins, and links very closely, to our Aspirational Beehive which can be seen throughout school and in our classroom: the core values are the skills and attributes that are rewarded for demonstrating within the school environment.
Our class code also links closely to that of our Trust, White Woods Trust, that celebrates 4 Cs: Child-Centered, Collaboration, Curiosity and Challenge
Home learning will be provided at the start of each half term. This will be in the form of a menu that includes activities which are based on the learning that has taken place in class. Pupils will have approximately 5 weeks to complete at least one of the given activities - the more they can complete, the better as home learning will be then shared in class and during our Fabulous Finish event.
Spellings will be given weekly, with pupils tested every Friday.
Regular reading is also essential for children to further extend their vocabulary and to experience a range of writing styles and genres. In Penguin Class, children can access the school library and they are encouraged to borrow books which appeal to their interests.
Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please make sure that on these days, children have correct PE kit (white t-shirt, black shorts and trainers). In winter months, we encourage children to bring a jacket or a jumper to wear as well. Please ensure your child's clothing is labels as it remains their responsibility look after their clothing and equipment.
