Reception

Welcome to the Foundation Stage

We use Jolly Phonics to help with the teaching of Letters and Sounds.

Book bags should be brought into school on your child’s reading day as well as each Friday.

Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Friday P.E. kits are to remain in school each week and will be sent home for a wash at the end of each half term.

Short homework tasks are sent out each Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday. Please ask a member of the Foundation Stage team if further explanations are needed.

Please remember to send in a fruit snack for afternoon playtime.

Water bottles should be filled up and sent into school on a Monday. The children are then shown how to use the water cooler in school to refill their bottles. Bottles will be sent home each Friday for a wash.

Year 1 - Mr JOnes 

Hello and welcome to year 1. It now seems a long time ago from those first days this time last year when your son or daughter took their first steps in education in our school. They are now more independent and well prepared to begin their next phase of learning in Key Stage 1. It is the first of many points of educational transition, where they move from  Foundation stage with an adult and  child centred approach to learning;  getting ready for more formal teaching and learning in year 2. We have a lot of work to do!

I am Mr Jones the year one class teacher. Mrs Jenks is our teaching assistant.

If you ever have any questions or concerns, please do come and see any of us.  I may not be able to see you straight away but I will make an appointment or call you back at the earliest mutual convenience.

Some information you will need.

PE days are Tuesday and a Thursday so please ensure your child’s PE kit is in school that day. PE kits however, should be kept in school every day. Children will bring them home at the end of every half term.              

PLEASE PLEASE! could you ensure all kit and uniform is named.  Children in year one do not recognise one piece of uniform from another.

Homework is going to be given out on a Thursday. It will either be a paper exercise or an activity on the school website or Activelearn. It should be returned to school Tuesday morning at the latest however, I will be encouraging the children by means of rewards to complete and return this on the Monday morning.

Reading- the school’s policy is that children are expected to read a minimum of four times a week. Please sign the diary and make a comment to acknowledge this.  I will check and sign the diaries weekly also looking for correspondence from you.

Termly overviews – these are on the website and are available as paper copies if requested. This is so that you can be actively involved in your child’s learning. If you have any expertise or suitable resources in any of these areas and feel you could contribute, please don’t be shy and come and share these with us.

If anyone would like to volunteer to help out in the class, listening to readers or doing odd jobs, please let me or the office know.

I look forward to working with you and your children and getting to know you all a lot better.

Regards

Mr Jones 

Year 2 - Mrs Waton and Mrs bentley 

Welcome to Year 2!!

Year 2, in Woolston Community Primary School, is an exciting year where our children flourish into independent learners in preparation for Key Stage 2. Mrs Waton teaches the class on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Bentley on a Thursday and Friday.  Each morning, Miss Ashton, Mrs Moore and Mrs Jenks works with us. Mrs Naylor works with us on a Wednesday afternoon and all day Thursday and Friday.  

PE: PE will take place every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon.  PE kits should remain in school every day in case we manage to fit in an extra lesson and will be sent home at the end of each half term. We also subscribe to 5-a-day fitness which is a website we use to perform a 5 minute dance daily.  We use this as a brain break between morning lessons. This term we have Premier Sports supporting one of our PE sessions which is a fantastic addition to our PE provision. 

Homework: Homework is given out every Wednesday and alternates between English and Maths.  Homework will always be due in the following Tuesday.  Children should spend no more than 30 minutes on their homework.

Reading: Children’s reading books are changed on the day that they complete guided reading.  Children will choose 2 books per week (more if required).  It is the school’s policy that the children are expected to read 3 times a week to develop their confidence, fluency and understanding. Please sign your child’s diary and write a brief comment about your child’s progress.  

Reading Diaries:  Diaries will be checked and signed on the day that children change their reading books. Please feel free to use the diary to communicate with me. 

We are looking forward to the year ahead, watching the children learn and grow.  Year 2 is a wonderful year where children flourish!

Mrs Waton and Mrs Bentley 

Year 3 - Mrs Buckley

Welcome to our Year 3 Class Page!

Year 3 are a group of thirty fantastic children who all strive to do their best each and every day.  

Below is some information you may find helpful.  However, if your questions are not answered here, please feel free to write a note in your child’s diary and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible. 

Homework – Homework will be given out every Friday and will alternate between a maths and an English focus.  We would like homework to be returned by the following Tuesday at the latest.

PE – Children should have their PE kit in school every day and take it home for washing at weekends.  

Water bottles – All children are encouraged to have a water bottle in school each day which is available for them to drink from throughout the day.  Research shows we learn better when our brains are hydrated!

Reading – as per school policy, we expect children to read for a minimum of 4 times at home per week.  This should be recorded in diaries and will be monitored in school weekly.  Children will have the opportunity to change their books as and when they need to, however diaries will only be checked weekly. 

Diaries – Diaries will be checked on your child’s guided reading day.  If you put a note in their diary that you wish to be responded to before their guided reading day, please encourage your child to show one of us their diary that morning.

As ever, we really value the support parents and carers provide with their child’s education and as such, we welcome parents (with the relevant DBS checks) to accompany us on trips and to come into school and work with children.  If you can spare some time to help in school, please contact Mrs Hipkiss at the school office.

Mrs Buckley 

Year 4 - mrs cooper 

Welcome to Year 4.

I am thoroughly looking forward to working with your child this year. It will hopefully be an exciting but challenging time for all!!

Reading- Children will change their own book when they have finished it and enter information about each new book into their Home/School Diary on the appropriate dates. It is vital that the children read at 3 times a week.

Maths/English Homework- Friday-Activities to reinforce current topics on alternate weeks. Children also need to work on learning their multiplication tables as a priority as they are expected to know all their tables and the relevant divisions by the end of this year.

Spelling Lists will be given every Friday and stuck into the Home/School diary along with the score from the previous week.  These spelling lists will be tested on the following Friday.

In conjunction with the written homework, I will allocate the children appropriate reading material through their Bug Club account. Within these texts are challenging activities that will help your child to improve their inference and deduction skills. As well as this, I will provide interactive mathematical activities, through the same Activelearn account, that will link and reinforce objectives taught in that week. Whilst these interactive activities may be seen as extra homework, I feel they will help your child to progress. As well as this, they are exciting to play!

Please sign your child’s homework diary and return it every Friday.

Homework books should be returned on Wednesday to give me chance to mark the work and to give them out again on Friday. Please complete homework in pencil!

Our PE day for the first half of the autumn term will be on a Friday afternoon (Kit needed- white tee shirt, green shorts, pumps).  

All parents and grandparents are very welcome to help in the classroom. Please contact me via your child's homework diary if you would like to help. Any time that you can spare would be much appreciated and would help the children greatly.

If you have any concerns regarding your child this year please feel happy to contact me through the School Office or after school on the playground.

Thank you

Mrs Cooper

Year 6 - mrs king and Mrs Quansah

In year 6, we have two class teachers, Mrs King who works in year six every morning and Mrs Quansah, who works every afternoon. Mrs Quansah also teaches Maths to the class every day.  Year 6 is a year where children and teachers continue to challenge each other's thinking. Children develop independence and are given the opportunity to select learning challenges in order to progress.  Should you wish to speak to us, please do not hesitate to make an appointment, send a message in your child's diary or through the school website email. We are looking forward to spending the year together and have an exciting curriculum to look forward to.

Homework

Homework, to reinforce classwork, will alternate between Maths and English; it will be handed out each Friday. Homework should be completed and handed in each Tuesday.  Additionally, your child may bring home a spelling activity linked to the spelling pattern/rule taught in class.

Maths

Children should have completed their turquoise maths passport before they enter year 6.  Targeted support will be available for children who have not passed this. Children who have passed this should continue to build fluency around the areas identified in the passports throughout key stage 2.  Revisiting these key facts will be a priority as the children need to constantly reinforce their mental maths skills. All children should be able to recall their 1-12 times tables by the end of year 4.  If your child has not achieved this, please support them at home to access maths games online.

English

Learning the grammatical structure of the English language is a strong focus throughout school.  The terminology in upper key stage two can become challenging.  Please reinforce grammatical terminology when working with your children on homework projects.

Please refer to Appendix 2 from the National Curriculum for further detail and also the National Curriculum glossary for support; these can be found on the class homepage.

Reading

In upper key stage 2, children should aim to read for 20 minutes four times per week. Books will be changed independently and children will write the title of each new book on the date page in their diaries.  The challenge throughout year 6 is to be able to read at speed whilst maintaining comprehension.  Please support your child's reading stamina by ensuring that they read at home. Reading diaries must be signed weekly by parents/carers.

Spelling

Children will have a whole class teaching session and will be learning the spelling rules as advised in the National Curriculum for England 2014; this document can be found on the class homepage.  A spelling activity will form part of the homework

PE

PE will take place each Wednesday afternoon outdoors weather permitting.  Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school.  Trainers can be worn for outdoor PE.

Designated Provision- Owls

Welcome to Woolston CP Designated Provision.

We are all in key stage 2, years 3 to 6. We have 3 teachers, Miss Parker, Mrs Slocombe and Miss Rathbone.  There are only nine of us because we learn better in a quiet, well organised and less crowded environment.  

We all have autism and like to learn about our autism. Some of us have some lessons in the other classes so we can practise being in a bigger class in preparation for going to high school. 

We do everything that the other classes in school do, assembly, lunch and playtimes, trips, parties, residentials, after school clubs and sports day etc.  Our class is open at playtimes and some other children come in to play games if they don't want to go out.

We use lots of different resources to help us learn. We have a chill out tent and lots of sensory toys to help us concentrate.
If anyone has any questions about autism or about our class you can ask any of our teachers.  They will be happy to answer any questions
