This term our topic is Heroes and Villains. This topic has a History focus, with children learning about Heroes and Villains from the past and present. During this topic children will be writing newspaper reports and play-scripts. Children will learn about famous Welsh stars and will be encouraged to use their internet researching skills to find out more information about heroes and villains.
There will not be a school trip during this topic, but instead the children will be meeting the Paralympic athlete Rhys Jones.
Your child has been given a reading book and a reading record. Children will be reading with the teacher once a week, one week individually when reading will be commented on in individual reading records, and the alternate week as part of a guided group reading session. Please ensure your child brings their record and book on their specified reading day (noted in reading record). We encourage each child to read at home every day for at least 15 minutes. Please update your child’s reading diary weekly.
During indoor PE, children should wear black or navy shorts with a t-shirt (house colours) or leotard.
During outside PE, children should wear shorts/ tracksuit bottoms, a house t-shirt and trainers.
Long hair should be tied back and earrings should be taken out or not worn on the day of PE.
J5 & J6: Indoor PE - Wednesday
Outdoor PE - Monday
J7: Indoor PE - Monday
Outdoor PE - Friday
The children have been provided with homework books and can cover/decorate them as they wish. Every Monday the children will be given both English and Maths homework to be completed by the Friday. The children should stick their homework in their homework book in order to keep it safe.
Some weeks the children may be asked to complete topic homework and this should be presented neatly in their homework books.
Children are also encouraged to learn their times tables and spellings given as this will assist them in literacy and numeracy lessons.
In the mornings please can children (or parents) not enter the building before 9am.
The school now has a Twitter page which is updated with key school events and dates. Please follow us: @pontyclunpri
