Hi everyone and welcome to Gecko Class! My name is Miss Johnson and I am very excited to be the Gecko class teacher this year! I love visiting museums, reading lots of books, and spending time with my family. My favourite school subjects are history and English. This year we are going to be investigating and learning about a variety of new and interesting topics - I can't wait to get started.
Grown ups: If you need to have a chat about anything school related, feel free to grab me at the end of the day once all of the children have gone home or call/email the office who can pass a message on to me.
End of the Day
When we finish for the day we will be leaving from the library door at 3:30pm.
Our spelling test day is on a Friday. Spellings can be found on the individual term pages and on teams. We recommend practising spellings 3x a week.
We are now having times tables tests on a Wednesday afternoon. The children will be given 10 random times tables questions from any times table. Please practice on TT Rockstars at home for 10-15 minutes daily.
Our PE day is on Wednesday. Please make sure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit:
- Royal Blue or navy T-Shirt (plain or with school logo)
- Navy Blue or black shorts (plain)
- Black Plimsolls for Indoor PE. Plain Black Trainers for Outdoor PE.
- Navy Blue / Black Tracksuit (unbranded)
Reading books will be changed by the children independently whenever they need to change them. Home reading should be done at least 5x a week and the reading record needs to be signed by an adult. Reading records will be checked once a week and signed by the teacher.
Each week the children will receive a maths and an English homework sheet (alternately). I will be handing these out in paper copy on a Friday at home time, they will be due in the following Friday. I will also be uploading them to teams,
On the term pages you will find the termly homework assignment. Children can chose one of the six options for homework that will need to be handed in by the date shown on the page. If you are submitting a video or image for your homework, it can be uploaded to teams.
