Autumn Term 2018

This term the class will be going on the following Educational visits.  These visits will provide a fun and valuable learning experience which will link with teaching back at school.  This was highlighted as a strong feature of our school by OFSTED on their last visit.


Thursday 6th September (Mrs Jenkins &            Mrs Reeves)

Safetyworks, Newcastle


Tuesday 11th September (Mrs Reeves)

Tuesday 18th September (Mrs Jenkins)

BBC Newcastle


Monday 17th September (Mrs Reeves)        Friday 21st September (Mrs Jenkins)

'Hit the Surf', Seaburn Beach


Monday 5th November (Mrs Reeves & Mrs Jenkins)

Newcastle Airport

Homework will be given out every Friday and needs to be completed and returned to school by the following Wednesday. Maths homework will be linked to developing the arithmetic skills which are being taught that week. Another short homework task will be set, and this may well be related to English, but could be a research question connected to which ever theme the children are studying at the time. If the children need Internet access for the research, and this is not available at home, arrangements will be made for them to complete the work in school. Children are also encouraged to take home their spelling books and reading books every night so that they can practise and improve.

In addition to this there is a list of words that the children will be learning throughout the year.  Any support and practice that you can do at home would be most beneficial.
