Crazy Hair Day!

The school is holding our first every Crazy Hair Day this Friday 6th October. The children are encouraged to come to school with an interesting/ fun hair style. There will be a competition for the most inventive hair style on the day! The aim is to raise funds for Educate Together and so children are asked to please bring in a 1euro donation towards it.

First Class Homework:

2nd – 6th October 2017

  • Please note out PE day has been changed to Friday starting from this week.
  • We are learning about autumn at the moment. If you are out and about and find anything to do with Autumn for our nature table it would be super if the children could bring them in to share with the rest of the class e.g. acorns, conkers, sycamore tree seeds, blackberries, crab apples, fir cones etc.
  • We are starting shared reading for homework this week. Please refer to the note that was sent home about this last week. Your child will bring home a book on Monday and can read it with you over the course of the week or faster than this depending on their reading level and the length of the book.

Dear Parents,

As for last week’s homework, please follow the L.S.C.W.C. (Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check) layout in your child’s copy book by ruling their copy each night. It is important that your child practices their addition tables aloud every night. Your child should know the answer without counting. Each Thursday evening please ensure that your child revises all the spellings and tables covered that week for an in-class test on Friday. The test will be done in the homework copies so you can see how they did. Please sign the test to acknowledge that you have seen it.

Thank You,

Claire

Dear Parents,

Please follow the L.S.C.W.C. (Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check) layout in your child’s copy book by ruling their copy each night. I have done it for the first night as an example. It is very important that your child practises their addition tables aloud every night. Your child should know the answer without counting. Each Thursday evening please ensure that your child revises all the spellings and tables covered that week for an in-class test on Friday. The test will be done in the homework copies so you can see how they did. Please sign the test to acknowledge that you have seen it.

Thank You,

Claire

Note to parents which children brought home on 4/9/17

Dear Parent(s)/ Guardian(s),

 

My name is Claire Romito and I will be your child’s class teacher this year. I would like to invite you to an introductory meeting for all of the parents in your child’s class on Thursday 7th September from 8.30-9am in my classroom. This will be an opportunity for me to explain the routines/ important dates/ homework etc. for the year, and for you to ask any questions that you may have. It would be great to see as many parents as possible in attendance so that we can plan to work together and ensure your child gets as much as possible out of the year.  On Thursday, the children will line up as normal in the Infant yard, and you may accompany your child into the classroom.

 

I have enclosed your child’s homework for the week. Please only complete what has been assigned for a particular day each evening. While it may be tempting to do all of the homework in one night to get it out of the way for the week, children do not get the most out of homework by doing this. It is more beneficial to do a little each evening while your child is attentive, as oppose to doing it all at once. Furthermore, homework given revises work that has been covered in school that day and if you skip ahead, you child may not have covered the material in class yet.

 

Starting from next week the homework will be made available on the school website each week. From the “students” tab, select “class news”, then “1st Class Claire”. This is to cut down on printing and paper waste as our school is a Green School. If you do not have internet access and need a printed copy of the homework each week, please let me know by sending a note in to school this week. Shared reading will also be given for homework from next week and I will explain about the homework in more detail at the meeting on Thursday.

 

I look forward to working with you and your child this year.

 

Kind regards,

 

Claire Romito
