Dear Parents,

 

There will be two zooms a day (Maths and English). I will do a half an hour guided task on Zoom, followed by an independent task to be completed after the lesson. I will also upload a weekly plan for English, Maths and Topic onto the class page.  Use the Supporting Documents to help with Topic work. Please complete any home learning in your homework books, if you don't have your homework book, please collect from school.

 

I have created home learning packs that are available to collect from the school office.  Learning packs are to be done as and when possible, in addition to the weekly lessons.

 

If you have finished your reading books, please email me to let me know. I will leave a new book in the school office for you to collect. Alternatively, there are many free books to access via the home learning links below.

 

It is really important to keep working hard at home. Make sure you keep to a routine. School work will be added to the website regularly.

 

If you haven't emailed your email address, please can you do so to receive the zoom links, which will be emailed out each morning.

 

If you have any questions or need any support at home please email 

asmith@st-josephs-bacup.lancs.sch.uk

 

Thank you

Purple Class Staff

Start of the day

To ensure a smooth transition at the beginning of the day there will be a member of staff on the door to address any concerns. If you would like to speak to a member of staff at the end of the day please wait until all the children have been collected to ensure all children are delivered to parents safely. If you feel you would like to make an appointment to speak to Mrs Smith, please do so at the school office.

 

 

Homework

Homework will be handed out every Friday and collected in the following Thursday.  There will be one English and one Maths piece of Homework a week.

 

 

Purple Class Homework rules

 

  • Always try your best.
  • Ask your parents for help only when you need it.
  • If you are unsure or need more help, please ask a teacher in school.
  • Use a pencil or a black pen to do your best handwriting.
  • Hand in your homework book every Thursday morning.
  • Your homework book is your responsibility, not your parents.
  • If homework isn’t handed in on the Thursday, you will miss a break time.

 

Reading books

 

We aim to check reading books every day, whether your child has read their book or not, please bring it in so we can read with them in school.

 

 

P.E

 

Children are to come into school, in their PE kits on Thursdays for PE.   PE kits consist of a white top, black pants or shorts and trainers.  Please also provide a coat or a school jumper as we will be trying to have our PE lessons outside as much as possible.

 

 

Uniform

 

Please ensure all items of uniform, coats and bags have names in them.

 

 

 

Library Books

 

Each child in Purple Class will be taken to our school library on a Tuesday and will able to choose a book to keep in their tray.

 

 

Year 2 SATs

 

The Year 2's will be doing their SATs in the middle of May. The children will be tested on their Maths and English skills. Please be reassured that we deliver these tests in such a way as to ensure it is not stressful for the children; if you have any questions please ask.
