Welcome to Birch 3RP's class page!
The adults who work in our class are Miss Patel and Mrs Huggins.
Our class novel is:
The BFG by Roald Dahl
Some important bits you need to know:
Our indoor PE day is Tuesday for which the kit is a white t-shirt and black shorts
Our outdoor PE day is Thursday for which the PE kit is a white t-shirt, tracksuit/jogging bottoms, a jumper and outdoor PE trainers
On Wednesdays, we may also take part in an outdoor learning session, therefore, suitable footwear and jackets must be worn.
Starting from Autumn term 2, we have introduced a new homework policy. This includes a requirement for your child to read three times a week, access TT Rockstars for times table practice and also practising the spellings set for that week. There will be no other paper homework set however, children are encouraged to practice key skills to further develop their knowledge. if they wish.
Children will also be set half term holiday homework with an element of art and design based on topics taught in the curriculum.
Spellings are also sent out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday.
Please practise them at home as often as possible.
Reading should be done at home at least 3 times each week and recorded in reading logs. Remember to bring your reading log in at least once a week so we can keep track of how often you are reading. As soon as you have finished your book, make sure to hand it in so we can give you a new one. Children who read at least 3 times a week, every week, are invited to a special party after school once every half term. Could you be at the first one?
