Please read the attached letter, on the link below, which has information on how your child can access reading books and take quizzes at home over the coming weeks. This will enable them to enjoy reading and have fun exploring a whole new range of books.

At 9am Monday-Friday, Joe Wicks will be doing a live stream 30 minute PE session from his channel on YouTube. This would be a great way to stay active even if indoors. A link to his YouTube page can be found below where there are allso a selection of kids workouts available at all times.

From Miss Parr and Mrs Toms
Below we have listed some helpful things about our class that we thought you might find useful to know.
- At All Saints, we teach a creative curriculum which is taught through termly themes. In KS1, English and all foundation subjects (history, geography, art and DT) are taught through our themes.
- Our themes begin with a super starter activity to get the children hooked on the subject, they have in the past included crimes to solve, visitors, trips or mysterious packages to investigate!
- The theme ends with a fantastic finisher. These are equally exciting celebrations of their learning!
- The children love this way of learning and are very enthusiastic about continuing their learning at home. Maths, RE, PE, Computing and French are taught discretely.
All children throughout the school all follow the same 6 Golden rules at all times and are encouraged and rewarded for being ‘green to go’.
1.Do Listen 2.Do be gentle 3.Do be kind and helpful 4.Do be honest 5.Do look after property 6.Do work hard.
If, after a reminder, a child continues to break a rule, their name will be moved on our class traffic lights. Each colour (yellow, orange and red) has a consequences.
Children are rewarded individually with raffle tickets. Raffle tickets are placed into the class box and a draw is done at the end of each day. Winners are able to take a prize from the class treasure chest!
Individual children are selected for our Whole School Praise Book and their names are read out on Friday's in assembly. This includes a ‘Green to Go’ award for the child in class who has consistently followed our Golden rules and been a great role model to their peers. We also have a Maths star and a Literacy star each week.
Points can also now be earnt for their house team.
Children are set one piece of homework on a Friday (alternating between maths and literacy each week), to be handed in the following Thursday.
Children are given the opportunity to change their books everyday and are encouraged to read, to or with an adult, at least 5 times a week.
New spellings are sent out on a Thursday and will be tested the following Thursday
We have a show off read to take home at the end of each book and returned on the specified date.
We love a challenge in St Patrick’s class. Every lesson has a challenge and every piece of homework does too.
The homework challenge and the class chocolate challenge are optional but we encourage children to complete them.
Children are also given the chance to enter the termly curriculum challenge for the chance to win a reward.
PE takes place on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on this day.
Children will need dark coloured jogging bottoms for outside P.E, along with their school jumper, dark coloured shorts and a white t-shirt for indoors. Trainers or plimsoles are also required.
Children must be able to take out their earrings before the lesson and are responsible for looking after these. It may be easier for you to remove them on PE days.
Long hair should be tied up.
Supporting learning at home
Where possible, we encourage children to learn at home through everyday experiences. Linking family days out to our theme is a brilliant way to do this and children love coming into school and telling the class what they’ve learnt.
Keep In Touch
We have an informal open door policy in key stage 1.
If you wish to speak to our teacher just catch her on the playground at the end of the school day after she has safely seen all of the children in the class out to their appropriate adult.
If after school is not convenient to you: phone up the school office and request that the teacher phones you back to arrange a more mutually convenient time.
Failing all of the above – write a note to the teacher asking to speak to them and get your child to pass it on.
School Core Priorities
Our school priorities are reading and writing. We shall be focusing on these throughout all aspects of learning.
