Welcome to Garnet Class!
Here you will find out about all of the exciting things we have been learning each term, including photographs of us, our brilliant work, and super displays.
There might be times when you have a question or query: face to face drop in sessions would normally be available on Tuesday after school but due to Covid 19 restrictions, we are currently unable to offer this. Messages can be left with the adult on the door at the start and end of each day. Otherwise, please use Google Classroom or your child’s planner. If the matter is urgent, please contact the school office to arrange a suitable time for a phone conversation.
Each day, we ask that the children bring to school their book bag containing their school planner and the reading books that have been provided. Due to restrictions on the sharing of resources in schools, children will be provided with two phased reading books each week and one pleasure book. These books will be changed once a week during the child’s reading session in school. We ask that you read five times each week with your child and ‘FIVERS’ will be checked off every Monday for the previous week therefore the two phased books can be read more than once at home throughout the week in order for the children to achieve their ‘FIVERS’. The pleasure book is a book for you to enjoy reading to your child, perhaps as a bedtime story.
During Term 1, Garnet class will have PE on Mondays and we therefore ask that children wear their PE kit to school on this day. PE kit does include tracksuit bottoms and trainers and the children can also wear their school jumper and a coat on these days.
Phonics homework will always be set on a Friday and children need to return their purple Phonics Homework book to their class teacher the following Thursday. We do not expect the children to complete this homework independently and would be very grateful if you could spend some time working with your child on the tasks and activities set each week. There will also be some spellings that we would like the children to learn from memory, so we would be grateful if you could practise these with your child.
Details of the curriculum content that we will be covering during each term’s topic and topic homework can be found in the ‘Curriculum Letters’ section of this website as well as on the ‘Stream’ on Google Classroom. Topic projects that are completed at home can be uploaded (as a photo, video or document) into the relevant folder on Google Classroom.
