I am very excited to welcome you all to Pine Class. My name is Miss Barton and I will be your child’s class teacher this year. I am very much looking forward to working with your child, supporting them with their learning, and getting to know them. In addition to myself, your child will be supported by Mrs Lee and Mrs Noonan.
Each week your child will be set a piece of Maths and English homework. The children are encouraged to complete their homework independently however, if your child finds some of their homework particularly difficult please annotate on their homework and don’t hesitate to ask me for clarification.
In addition, your child will continue to receive a reading book each week. Please encourage your child to read often and discuss the characters, settings, and language choices found inside the book with your child. Before returning the book to school, please sign and comment in their reading journals about their progression and any discussions you have shared with your child.
Every Monday along with their homework your child will receive a list of spellings to learn for the following Friday. Later on in the autumn term your child will also receive times tables to learn. Practicing their times tables and spelling is important to support your child’s progression in English and Mathematics. Please encourage your child to revise their spellings and times tables daily.
Please note that during this half term P.E lessons will take place on a Monday afternoon. On Mondays your child should come into school in their P.E kit. They do not need to keep their P.E kit in school. To ensure the safety of your child please ensure that long hair is tied back and any jewelry is removed before coming into school. If your child requires an inhaler please send it into class labelled with your child’s name and the dosage required.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you all. If you have any questions for concerns please do not hesitate to come and speak to me after school.

Pine Class had lots of fun in PE this week. They had to guide their blindfolded partner through an obstacle course (made by themselves). It required the children to work as a team, listen carefully to each other and trust their partners. Well done Pine Class. Please...
