Welcome to Dragon Class.
Here are a few bits and pieces to help you understand how our class runs.
Dragon class runs on a job share basis. Miss Vause takes the class on Mondays and Tuesdays and Mrs Green on Thursdays and Fridays. We take it in turns to work Wednesdays.
In Dragon class we use Class Dojo to keep in touch with both parents and pupils: Copies of letters, photos, homework and reminders of events will be sent this way and messages can be sent and received where required.
All PE will only be taught outside for now so please keep an indoor and outdoor kit in school every day. We will plan our lessons around the weather.
Swimming lessons will be on Tuesdays. Please arrive at school wearing your swimming clothes underneath your uniform (Don't forget to pack your pants!) You will need a BIG bag to put all of your belongings in, including your coat and shoes, to keep on the poolside whilst you swim.
Homework this year will consist mostly of reading, spelling and times table practise and this is the same throughout the school. Additional assignments will be sent to the children via Class Dojo.
A spelling test will be done every Monday. (Spelling lists are in the children's planners for them to learn as well as on dojo if they leave their planner at school) Each week the children will be tested on the 6 words they have been learning along with 4 others taken from previous weeks.
Times tables tests will be on Fridays. Please help your child to practise as often as possible as it helps so much in their general, day to day maths work. The tests focuses on instant recall of all times tables and is delivered with a time limit for each question.
We expect children to try and read at least 3 times a week either by themselves or to an adult. A mixture of both would be most beneficial.
We want your child to feel happy and secure at school and this is our ultimate aim to enable them to make consistent progress. If there are any problems, questions or concerns about your child please don’t hesitate to send a message through class dojo or email if you prefer.
