Welcome to Japan Class!
Our teacher is Mrs Maura Chamberlain and our two wonderful teaching assistants are Mrs Kerinne Bunting and Ms Julie Baldwin.
We will be doing PE first thing on Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons so all children will need appropriate kit. There is no spare kit to borrow so please ensure that kit comes in on the Monday and stays in, especially if your child attends a sports club during the week.
Spellings - these will be sent home each fortnight and these are posted on the class web page. Your child will tell you their group. They will be stuck in to the back of their Yellow Reading Record to practise at home.
Reading - we would love it if your child reads to you or you read to them every night. We understand that this is not always physically possible but if you can do at least three listens per week, that would be great. Please talk to your children about their reading. It should be a pleasurable experience with a mutual enjoyment of storylines and characters. Question them about their understanding and make predictions about the next chapters.
Times Tables - we will be doing an initial focus on our multiplication tables in the first fortnight. Please chant, test, use ipads or whatever means to help your child become secure in their tables - they really are key to their multiplication, division and fractions work!
