HAZEL CLASS – JANUARY 2016
CaptureWelcome back!
Happy New Year! We hope that you all had a wonderful Christmas and are ready for the new term. We have a lot to do over the next few terms and the children will be involved in some exciting work, including learning about French artists, practising French dances and preparing French food!
Learning Logs. 
We will continue to send home learning logs on Friday, which will be collected in on the following Tuesday. Your children have until February 5th to complete one of the three tasks that we have set based on our topic of France. (These tasks can be found on the back page of the leaflet that we have sent home) Until then, we will send just one piece of learning log work to complete each week.
In addition to this, we will also be sending home a piece of Maths or English along with the weekly spellings.
Spelling practice sheets are handed out each Monday and need to be returned the following Monday when the test will take place. Please ensure that your child completes and returns their homework. It is a really useful way of revisiting learning and sharing with you what we have covered in class.
Reading
Please ensure that your child has their reading book in school every day as there will be time put aside for them to read on their own and at other times as part of a group. We will also be monitoring the children’s reading records so please remember to sign them to say that you have heard them read and to add any other comments.
The reading quizzes will continue to be completed by your child and we hope to see the number of children achieving 100% in tests to continue to rise – we saw considerable progress in this before Christmas!
Times tables
The children have been completing times table tests every Friday. They need to know all the times tables up to 12 x 12 so please test them at home when you can. Challenge them to improve their scores and make it fun!
We also have an exciting new resource called ‘Time Tables Rockstars’ which is an online programme children will be able to access with their own log in at home and at school to help them speed up their recall of their tables.
Please see the leaflet that we have sent home to give you an overview of the work we will be covering over the next two terms.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs Hunter and Mrs Larsen
