Crackmore Class is taught by Miss Danyali. Miss Weasley is our class teaching assistant.Other teachers support our class for some subjects throughout the week.
We have an open door policy so please do pop in and see me before school, or catch me at the end of the day if you have any questions which we may be able to answer quickly. Alternatively, email the office and your message will be passed on to me. We can arrange an appointment at a convenient time if necessary.
The following information will help you prepare your child for the routines in our class.
Reading: Children should always have a suitable book to read at school and at home. This book should be aligned to your child's age and reading ability. Your child will be assessed using Accelerated Reader and through 1:1 reading sessions. We will monitor these books at school and help your child to choose suitable books. We encourage children to read a wide variety of genres of book, and also use the library to choose different books which interest them. Reading at home should be recorded in your child's Reading Record and should be occurring at least 3 times a week. It is their responsibility to bring these to school and home again every day, as these are also used for computer login details, spellings and any quick messages from teachers. We reward children's reading with team points, stickers, stamps and sometimes prizes! We will be introducing a reading program called Accelerated Reader this year. Information about this and how your child can use it at home will follow in due course.
Home Learning: Weekly homework will be set for English and mathematics. Additionally, children will be set spellings and expected to read at least 3 times a week. Tasks will be set weekly on a Friday and all pieces should be returned each Wednesday. Written tasks should be completed carefully in pencil or pen and be checked thoroughly by children prior to handing it in.
A homework club is now available during school time if your child needs additional support. I am also happy for children to come and work with me if they are finding a piece of homework tricky.
P.E. lessons: P.E. will take place on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. P.E. kits should remain in school all week in case changes to the timetable occur, however, we aim to teach P.E. on the same days each week, if possible. Children will change for P.E. lessons in school. In addition, please ensure children continue to keep a pair of wellies or rough shoes in school to accommodate outdoor learning, play times or activities on the school field.
Thank you for your ongoing support,
