Welcome to Boscawen Class.
Hello, and a warm welcome to Boscawen Class!
Mrs Smitheram and Mrs Burns are your child’s teachers this year. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Barbary and Mr Lara.
This term our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday , however, this can vary (a lot) and therefore we would appreciate a full PE kits in school every day. A full kit includes white t-shirt, black shorts, suitable trainers and tracksuit bottoms and green jumper for winter. These should all be clearly labelled and in a PE bag. It will also help to have coats, hats, lunch boxes, drinks bottles, and money purses, etc, labelled in order to avoid loss or arguments over belongings.
There is now no lost property box. If belongings do not find a home in school they will be left out on a Friday in the parent’s shelter then given to FOPs for resale, so keep a look out for those missing items and label, label, label! Children will be expected to take on the responsibility for their own belongings now that they are juniors!
Children will be asked to complete spelling and topic homework every week. Homework will be set on a Tuesday to be handed in the following Monday. Children are responsible for learning spellings and for remembering their books.
It is important that your child carries out sustained reading at home for at least 10 – 15 minutes each day. It will help their reading progress and access to the key stage 2 curriculum significantly. Reading diaries are checked weekly and the children that have read most frequently in a week do receive a certificate and recognition in celebration assembly.
Finally, If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to catch either of us before 8:40am or after 3:20pm. By working together, we can help support your child as they continue their learning journey through the school. I very much look forward to meeting you all.
