It is important that your child is in school every day to receive their right to an education (article 28). School starts at 8.50am and finishes at 3.05. Please arrive promptly to ensure children do not miss any learning time. We are trying to get 100% attendance every week, so please help by getting your child to school on time, every day.
We will be doing at least 2 sessions of Physical Activity every two weeks. Please send your children in wearing their PE Kit (black shorts/ jogging bottoms in winter and a white t-shirt) on a Wednesday.
This will start later on in the term. Children will be tested every Friday each week, as we know that practising these spellings at home and at school will help to embed them. We really appreciate all of your support with this. Spellings set each week will match lists set on www.edshed.com where children can practise spellings by playing different games.
The children will recieve homework every Friday in their learning logs linked to what we are doing in class. Please support your child with this and encourage them to research information to become independent learners. Learning Logs will need to be returned every Thursday.
All children are regularly assessed to ensure they now take home a book at the right level. It’s really important to try and get back into good habits with reading at home as this will have a positive impact across the curriculum. We ask that children aim to read a least 4 times a week and that this is notes in their reading record. This should mostly be the banded reading or phonics book from school, although it is also fine for children to include some of the books they might read from home or the library. Reading at home will be monitored weekly and incentivised with rewards each half term. For more support with reading, more information can be found on the Reading and Phonics page.
We follow the Twinkl Phonics scheme in school. Here is some information for parents
ClassDojo is used at Haveley to allow teachers, pupils and families to communicate and share what is being learned in the classroom through photos, videos and messages. Points are awarded across the week when children are spotted showing rights respecting behaviour with the top 1st, 2nd and 3rd point scorers being recognised in school. These points are reset each week so that everyone starts from the same point on a weekly basis.
