Useful Information

Rock Star Maths

In Jupiter Class, pupils take part in a daily Rock Star Maths challenge. They use the iPads to answer multiplication questions in a format that replicates the end of Year 4 multiplication check. Classic rock songs help them keep the pace! The aim is to answer questions correctly to earn coins and improve their avatars.

Reading

In Jupiter class, we enjoy a positive reading environment in which books are enjoyed and shared by all. Pupils are given daily opportunities to read independently and some pupils will read with an adult. Every child will have two 45-minute sessions of guided reading a week.

Please encourage your child to read at home daily. Having a love of reading and the ability to read for extended periods of time is the perfect preparation for progression throughout the school.

We encourage the sharing of books that have been enjoyed so when your child has finished reading a book they can bring it in to school to share/swap with another child.

Spellings

Spellings will continue to be learned in school. You will be informed each week which spelling pattern we are focusing on so you can support your child at home.

P.E.

In spring term, PE will be on a Wednesday and a Thursday. The Thursday session will be swimming in the morning at Wetherby.

Food and Drink

Water bottles should be taken home and washed daily. We do ask that these bottles only contain water. A healthy snack is also permitted but ensure there are no nuts within this.
