Welcome to Cannon Street Class

Class Teacher: Mr C Grundey (Year Group Lead)

Teaching Assistant: Miss Campbell

Homework:

Handed out on Fridays,

Returned by Wednesday,

Please remember that homework is an important building stone in the child’s learning and development. The children will receive Dojo-Points for completed homework as well as particularly outstanding contributions.

Daily Reading:

To help further develop the children’s reading and academic development, please support and encourage the children to read daily for at least 10 minutes. This daily reading should then be recorded (title + pages) in the Learning Diary. We would kindly ask parents to sign/initial the record.

The children will receive Dojo-Points for daily reading.

Reading Activities:

Once the children have completed reading a book, they then choose an activity related to the book (e.g. book-review, letter to the author, sequel, character profile, alternative cover etc.). This activity is completed in the child’s Reading Journal. Our wonderful teaching assistants will then check, feedback and record the completion of these activities.

The children will receive multiple Dojo-Points to reward exceptional work.

PE:

Our current P.E. days are Tuesday (Miss Handley) and Wednesday (Mr Grundey).

Tips to ease back into a school routine

August 26, 2021

DO YOU LIKE CHANGE?

It’s almost the first day of a new term. It’s a change: new daily routine, new bedtime routine, lots of things to remember: school bag, uniform, packed lunch.

It can be daunting for pupils and families so why not try one of the following tips?

When does school start? 
Monday, September 6th.
That’s easy you might say , but what if you find reading time a bit confusing? Or if you need that little bit of extra practice to get ready ?

Sounds familiar? Try a countdown visual!

You can draw one, you can use a paper calendar, an electronic calendar or you might want to check out this website:

https://www.free-reward-cards.com/free-countdown-calendars/

UNIFORM 

It might be the first time you have to wear your Howard School’s uniform. Or you might be an old hand at it but…sometimes it all goes back to front! And how do you tell right shoe from left shoe?! It’s mind boggling!

 

Try out one of these tips and see how you get on! You can make a visual for right and left foot like in the picture.
Put a red mark, sticker, patch on the front of the trousers/skirt so you can see it when you button up your trousers/skirt; it will be much easier to remember back/front.

PACKED LUNCH

Not too keen on the lunch hall? Worried about not finding your lunchbox? Not too sure how to open the lid of your new lunch box?

Well, you are not the only one! Playing the Packed Lunch Game might help you gain confidence. Have a look at the picture below with your Parents/Carers and have a go!

 

SLEEP

Do you find yourself taking a long time to fall asleep? Worried about not getting enough sleep? Try one of the tips in the picture below. It might help you feeling more in control of your sleep pattern.

I hope that you will enjoy trying these tips and I look forward to seeing you in school on Monday, September 6th. Everything will be fine and you will be ready for a year full of learning, new experiences and playing.
