Team 5 have swimming on a Wednesday in Spring term

 

Please note: ensure children are wearing sensible school shoes at all times as the Daily Mile will occur whenever possible.

PE will be on a Wednesday morning this half term and we will be swimming in this slot. We will be leaving school at 9.30am and returning at approximately 11.30am. Children need to come in their normal school uniform and bring a towel, swimming costume, goggles if needed and a hair band for long hair on the day.

The way we implement homework here at Horn’s Mill has changed. We value the vital importance reading has on a child’s life and education. With that in mind, we are having a huge reading campaign this year and we need your help to ensure your child is reading at home too. Children in Team 5 are expected to read for a minimum of 15 minutes per day from Sunday through to Thursday. Ideally, this would be done with another person but if this is not possible reading alone for this time is still very impactful. Please initial your child's Reading Record after they have recorded their home reading.  We are doing a wide range of things in school to help inspire your child to read more and regularly update the class library with books that are current and interesting for your child to read in school and take home.  If you think of any books that your child might like us to order, please let any staff member in Team 5 know. 

Team 5’s reading records will be checked each MONDAY and books changed weekly.

Times Tables

By the time they reach Team 5, children are expected to know their times tables and related division acts up to 12x12.   As part of their homework, children are expected to be practising their tables on a daily basis until they can quickly recall all of their tables facts.  To aid this practise your child has been given a FREE subscription to Times Tables RockStars.  Tables have been individually set for each child.  If you find that you child's tables are either too easy or too difficult, please let a staff member in Team 5 know. Children in Team 5 should be accessing Times Tables Rockstars for at least 30 minutes per week.

Please note: When set, Home Learning challenges can be found in the link on this page.  

Don't forget to practise the spellings and times tables listed in your home learning!
