Giants

Welcome to Giants! 

Our Class Routine:

  • Miss Freeman is the class teacher;

  • Mrs. Montgomery teaches on a Thursday afternoon;

  • PE takes place on a Wednesday afternoon and children will need to come to school in their PE kits on this day.

Homework:

Your child has been given a Homework Planner to enable them to become more independent with personal organisation. This planner should be brought to school every day, along with their AR reading book.

  • Spellings are given on a Monday and tested the following Monday morning. They need to be practised regularly at home.

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

  • Mathletics tasks are often set by Miss Freeman to practise maths concepts taught in class. The children should be aiming to achieve a certificate each week (1000 points).

  • Times Tables Rock Stars is a website that your child should use to practise their times tables.

Spelling:

Spellings are handed out an a Monday and should be practised at home, ready for the spelling test on the following Monday. Have a look at the Spelling Menu below to find a range of different ways to practise!

Reading:

In order to develop as readers, Giants should be reading at home at least 3 times a week. This should mainly be your AR reading book but it could also included other things such as magazines, newspapers or picture books. When you have finished a book make sure to see if it has an AR quiz for you to complete!

If you would like to submit a book recommendation to Pages of Page Turners then there is a link below for you to follow.
