Welcome to Boscawen Class
Hello, and a very warm welcome to Boscawen Class!
Mr Harris is our Year 3 Class Teacher. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Richards. Mrs Davies is our PPA Teacher.
This term our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday, however, this can vary (a lot) and therefore we would appreciate full PE kits in school every day.
A full kit includes:
- white t-shirt;
- black shorts;
- suitable trainers;
- tracksuit bottoms and green jumper.
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 no lost property box. If belongings do not find a home in school, they will be left in the parent’s shelter before being 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, maths and literacy home-learning weekly. This will be set on a Thursday, to be handed in on the following Wednesday. Children are responsible for learning spellings and for remembering their books. The children also have topic based home-learning grids to help them engage with our termly topics. These are more creative in their nature and we hope the children will enjoy completing a selection of these for each of the topics throughout the year.
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 (Friday mornings) and the children that have read most frequently in a week receive a certificate and recognition in celebration assembly. The children will be given a book based on their scores within the Key Stage Reading Scheme, Accelerated Reader. These will give them a reading zone from which they can choose books and take quizzes to earn points. Their zone will be updated termly, during each assessment week.
This fabulous tool is a great way to keep up to date with the learning and upcoming events within Boscawen Class and the wider school community. Please check ClassDojo for up to date photos, videos and current class information. It is also possible to send messages and communication via ClassDojo.
On Fridays we will be welcoming a special visitor to class. Willow, our four legged friend, is extremely friendly and loves to listen to children read and be part of the Boscawen team.
Finally, If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to catch one 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.
