What we will be learning about this half term...

Vile Victorians

We will be thinking about this when we focus on GENEROSITY as a Christian value this half term.

A Christian Perspective on Generosity

God’s generosity is best described as ‘grace’, love given freely without limit or conditions.  This generosity, once experienced and acknowledged by an individual, can in turn release a generous spirit towards others.

Reflecting as a Whole School Community
Some questions to consider:

 

  • Do pupils truly understand the concept of giving without seeking any reward?
  • How are pupils encouraged to act with generosity in both their words and their actions?
  • Which areas of the curriculum enable the children to consider the importance of being generous not only with material objects but also with time, spirit and talents?

What we have been learning in class....

 

Weekly Routines

PE Kit: Our P.E. slot will be on Friday afternoons. Your child will need black shorts/jogging bottoms, a white T-shirt or house coloured T-shirt and trainers. Children must bring their kit to school, rather than come in wearing it. I will inform children of any one-off changes to PE days and will send a Schoop message to you as far in advance as possible. 

Snack Money: A healthy fruit snack is available for each child for 30p a day or £1.50 a week. This can be paid termly using Parent Pay. 

Library Books: Free choice school library books and class library books can be changed at any point in the week. A free choice reading book can be brought in from home, providing it is checked with a teacher or teacher's aid before commencing.

Homework: Homework will be sent out each Friday in your child's Homework Book and will be due in the following Wednesday. Each week, they will be asked to complete either a piece of Maths or Literacy based homework which will alternate from week to week. There will also be a termly homework grid sent out based on our topic - children should choose one piece of homework from this grid.
