Our School Day
Children can arrive at school between 8.30 and 9.00 am.
Class 4 end their school day at 3.30 pm and should be collected at this time from the Class F door.
PE in Class 4 takes place on Monday and Thursday. Children should come to school wearing their PE kits on these days – they do not need a change of clothes.
Spelling lists will be set at the beginning of each half term and children can select the list which they think is most appropriate to them. If they feel confident spelling the words in the ‘Practice’ list that week, they should learn the spellings from either the ‘Develop’ or ‘Expert’ list. The words in the ‘Expert’ list are slightly more challenging. All children should select either the Practice, Develop or Expert list unless they and their parents have been asked to practise an alternative list by the class teacher.
You can find the spelling lists for each term below:
Children have their own logins for Spelling Shed, where they can practise the spelling rule from the lists. This is assigned weekly, on the website. They also have access to the common exception words and the Year 3/4 spelling words lists for the whole year.
The times tables focus for each week is detailed on the termly spelling lists. Children also have their own logins for Times Tables Rockstars, where they can practise the tables set each week.
Children should try to read at home as much as possible and record this in their reading records. Reading records should stay at home and will be collected in at the end of the half term, for teachers to look at.
It would be fantastic if children could access a wide variety of reading materials at home. This might include fiction and non-fiction books, newspapers or magazine, instructions and recipes, online articles or stories, leaflets and letters. Listening to stories being read by an adult or older sibling is also very valuable for children, as it can encourage their love of reading, help develop their comprehension skills and provide a model for fluent, expressive reading.
Below are some websites where children can listen to stories being read aloud:
If children are isolating, or our class bubble closes, online learning will take place on E-schools, which can be accessed at https://st-michaels-rc-primary.eschools.co.uk/ Each child has their own username and password to access their class page.
On the class homepage, there are a range of different activities, resources and videos to support spelling, times tables, handwriting and reading. These can be used to support children at home, even when they are still attending school.
If children are isolating or the class bubble closes, resources, teaching videos and activities will be uploaded to e-schools daily. Children will need to check the ‘Projects’ and ‘Homework’ sections of their e-schools in order to access these.
