Our Class Routine:

  • Mrs. Stockwell will be teaching Monday to Thursday;

  • Mrs. Roberts will be teaching Science, RE and PINK (PSCHE) on Fridays;

  • Mr. Bedford will be teaching PE on Monday afternoons – full PE kits needed each week.

  • Our TAs are Mrs. Curtis and Mrs. Lacock.

 

Homework:

Your child has been given a Homework Planner to enable him/ her to become more independent with personal organisation. This planner should be brought to school every day, along with the AR reading book and word box.

  • Spellings are given on a Monday and tested the following Monday morning. Word boxes contain key vocabulary and should be revised regularly.

  • A short homework task is set on a Wednesday and should be completed by the following Monday. Mathletics tasks are often set by Mrs. Stockwell to practise Maths concepts taught in class.

  • Phoenix children should be reading at home at least 3 x a week and receiving 3 adult signatures.

  • Personal organisation is the key to being prepared to move on to Secondary School. Let’s get into good habits now!
