Welcome to Italy Class!

My name is Miss Worrall and I am Italy Class teacher. The other adult who will support the learning in Italy Class is be Mrs Sivewright she is our class teaching assistant and teaches the children P.E. on a Tuesday afternoon. Here is some information you may require. If you have any questions please ask any of us at the end of the school day, and we will be happy to help.

Homework

Homework is set every half term in the form of a ‘Homework Bingo.’ There are 30 activities to complete and range from reading and practising times tables to flying a kite. Please complete as many of the challenges during term time and ensure you return your book so we can share your hard work with the class and award lots of house points and Dojo points! There will also be a Topic homework set over a half term linked to what we have been learning in class or a different curriculum subject.

Education City homework is also set alongside the bingo and is another activity to tick off. These English and Maths games are an interactive way of practising key skills such as times tables. Your child’s log-in is in the front of their homework book and the results are automatically saved and sent to the Academy.

P.E.

P.E. is on a Tuesday afternoon. Children need to arrive at school in their P.E. kit on this day. They need to wear a tracksuit in-case of cold weather. They can wear their shorts and t-shirt underneath. Earrings should either be removed before attending school or alternatively your child can remove it and put it away safely themselves before the lesson.

Our swimming slot is Summer 1.

Snack

Your child will need a healthy snack to have during morning play outdoors, any pots must have names on if you wish them to be kept. Your child will continue to need a named water bottle which will be kept in the classroom and refilled daily.

Show and Tell

This year children will be given a slot to bring in their show and tell. A slip will be sent home with your child to remind them it is their turn to bring in show and tell.
