All homework will be given out on Mondays to be completed in their homework book. Spellings will be given out on Mondays to learn for Friday’s test. English (reading comprehension and/or grammar & punctuation task) and Maths will be handed out the same day and MUST be completed and returned by the Friday of that same week. This gives the children enough time to see their class teacher if they are struggling plus we realise the importance of having family time at the weekend.
The purpose of this work is to consolidate the learning from class and to prepare them for more intensive homework at high school. It is therefore extremely important that this work is completed. Any children who fail to bring/complete their homework will have to complete it during their playtime. If a child does not complete their homework three times in a half-term a letter will go home.
Reading – Children will have an independent reading book which will be brought home. It must be returned to school once read. Children can be reading their own independent book from home or school library/class reading area once they have finished the given book and completed a book review.
Children’s independent reading books are changed as and when required in school. It is your child’s responsibility to make sure a member of staff in class is aware that the book needs changing. Reading records are to be completed each time you listen to your child read at home. Equally, your child can complete the record by mentioning the pages read and whether they have enjoyed it or not.
As we are unable to have a Welcome Evening this year, if you have any questions or concerns please contact your child’s class teacher via email: email@example.com or by contacting the school office and arranging a telephone appointment.
Physical Education (P.E.) – will take place in both classes on Thursday and Friday afternoons, so under the new guidelines, children must come to school in their P.E. kits ready for lessons.
The St Paulinus P.E. kit consists of: a white t-shirt with the school logo, blue (or black) shorts, and a pair of pumps. As an optional extra, a dark coloured pair of jogging trousers and a school PE hoodie or jumper can also be worn when we are outside / during the winter months. Children must come to school in their PE kits on their PE days and will stay in their PE kits throughout the day.
In addition, the only jewellery permitted in school is a pair of plain small stud earrings. If your child has pierced ears, then they need to remove their earrings on each morning of P.E.
Please note that staff are not able to remove earrings, so this will result in your child not taking part in our P.E. lessons and an alternative task will be provided for the child, this is due to health and safety reasons.
Long hair must be tied back.
Please ensure your child wears their PE kit on their PE days. If your child does not come to school in their P.E. kit, you may receive a text message to inform you that they need it for the following week. All P.E. kit and School uniform must be labelled clearly with your child’s name. If it becomes lost, it can then be easily returned to the rightful owner.
