Due to the current situation around COVID-19 pupils may be working some of the next term remotely. In order to help parents and children with this we will be setting tasks to complete on their online platforms (such as Hwb and Purple Mash) and also sending some work home in a Home Learning Book. Unfortunately we do not have the resources available at school to print out all of the work for every pupil in the school, so we will also be uploading some tasks and work to class pages. Parents are not necessarily required to print all of this work at home, but if you can help your child read the work on the computer, they can write the answers or complete the tasks in their Home Learning Book. Could you please ensure that anything printed off, or completed on separate sheets of paper, is stuck into their books.
We absolutely appreciate that this is going to be a difficult time for everyone, and will support parents and children as best we can remotely. If you require further clarification about tasks set, pupils can email their class teacher using their Hwb email addresses. We politely request that these email addresses are not used for any other reason, we will however be monitoring our firstname.lastname@example.org email address to deal with any important enquiries.
January 2020 Blwyddyn Newydd Dda!
Hope you have all had an exciting and restful holiday. Welcome back to the Spring Term! Just a few reminders:
Registration Time - The children are registered at 8.55am. Please make sure your child is in class by 8.55am, also remind grandparents and child minders.
Reading Books - We try our best to hear the children read at least once a week, this means that reading books and records need to be in the children's bags everyday.
Spellings - Spellings are given out every Friday to be tested the following Thursday, please make sure your child has their spelling books.
Times table Tests - We will also be introducing times table tests this term. Please help your child to learn their tables as it forms the foundation of all their future numeracy learning in KS2. We recommend that children use this website to test themselves on their times tables:
PE kits - Our PE lessons are held every Tuesday and Thursday so please make sure the children have their kits on those days.
Homework Books - Please bring in the children's homework books asap so this term's jigsaw can be added.
We're looking forward to another fantastic term!
Mrs Harrison-James & Mrs Blackwell
Please find below a non-exhaustive list that might help those affected by school closures due to coronavirus, compiled by home educators.
Online learning - We have had a few glitches with out online learning but we have checked every username and password of every child and they are all working at school. If you have any other concerns, please contact us. Many thanks x
Online Learning - The children have been given all their usernames and passwords for Hwb, Purple Mash, Abacus and Oxford Reading Buddy. They have also been set extra learning on these sites. Have a look at home and try some of the activities with your child! You can also see what they have been learning about on Hwb!
Have fun! Mrs H-J x
18/9/19 - PE Reminder!
PE is every Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child has their house colour t-shirt or a white t-shirt plus black joggers/leggings or shorts. Thanks, Mrs H-J
Welcome to Class 3! 2019/2020
Welcome to and welcome back to Class 3. We hope you have had a restful and fun packed summer holiday! Class 3 is a mixed class of Year 2 and Year 3 and you can be assured that your child will be taught according to their abilities and needs not their age group. We will endeavour to ensure that your child is pushed and nurtured as much as possible so that they can reach their potential and beyond in Class 3.
This is just a quick letter to outline the expectations of your child in class.
The School Day
School starts at 8.55am. Please supervise your children on the top yard until the bell rings. The children will then line up in their designated lines. If your child is late or absent, please phone the office ASAP.
Breakfast is free to all children. Children will be offered toast, cereal and a juice drink. When the children have finished their breakfast they are able to play with the games and toys available.
It opens at 8.20am. Doors close at 8.40am. Children are supervised throughout their time in breakfast club. Breakfast is an extra service provided by the school and we expect only good behaviour from the children.
What to bring to school
Your child needs to bring a bottle filled with water only and a labelled piece of fruit and a book bag to take reading books home and any letters. All teaching and learning resources/equipment are provided by the school so there is no need for pencil cases.
‘Only my best is good enough for me’
We at Coychurch achieve very high standards and we have very high expectations of your child. Our lessons are planned to meet the needs of each child and they will be pushed and stretched at every opportunity. Whatever their ability, we can assure you that they will be challenged so they truly reach their potential and beyond if possible. We can only do this if your child tries their very best and shows good behaviour throughout the day. The children will be rewarded with class dojos, certificates and stickers.
It is crucial at this stage in your child’s education that they attend school every day in order to achieve their very best.Reading
‘The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn the more places you'll go.’ Dr Zeus.
Reading is the most important gift we can give to our children. It is the core skill to all our learning and it will continue to be to a core focus in Class 3. Please hear your child read as often as possible and also read to them as often as possible.
Many people think reading to their children is an infant activity but research shows us that if children are immersed in reading throughout the childhood they will be exposed to all sorts of different vocabulary, genres, experiences which will boost their imagination, listening, speaking and writing skills in class. Men reading with and to children also make a big impact on boys and girls. We will endeavour to hear the children read their personal reading books at least once a week. We also have focussed guided reading lessons and also they have the opportunity to read throughout their lessons in the day.
P.E – Physical Development
PE will be taught on a Tuesday and a Thursday. Please provide your child with a plain white t-shirt or their house colour t-shirt and black or navy shorts or joggers. You will be informed if the children need trainers the week before the lesson.
Your child will be expected to read every night, practise spellings and times tables. They will also have a termly home learning sheet to complete plus termly projects and intervention work. Spellings and multiplication tables will be given out on a Friday to be learned through the week for a quick test on the following Thursday.
Each term I will send out an overview of the Teaching and Learning in each subject area in Class 3.
We celebrate the children’s birthday in class but we do not allow birthday cakes/sweets etc… to share as we are a healthy school and also we have allergies to certain food in our class.
