Looking after property: A request:   

Hello, in recent weeks we have used a lot of stationary in the class. Frankly, some of the children have developed an attitude of not looking after their property, because they know the school will replace it for them.  To help encourage the children to look after their property, I have decided to no longer replace pencils, pens, white-board pens, rulers, etc if the children lose or break them.  Can you please help the children to make sure they come to school with everything they need to learn:

  • pencils
  • 12 inch ruler (no bendy or hinged ruler please). These were provided at the beginning of the year, but many have been snapped or written on.
  • Complete PE kit

Of course, all of these should be named.

I will keep a small stock of these for children to borrow for a few days until they are able to replace those thy have lost.  I hope you will understand that if the children lose the borrowed equipment they will be expected to replace it.

On a separate note, could I also ask that the children not bring to school the pencil sharpeners with a handle that have recently become popular. They find playing with these during lessons almost irresistible!  I do provide pencil sharpeners on every table.

Thank You, Mr. Handy

Reading! A very slow start to the class reading competition last week. Only 4 children had read 4 times in the week and once at the weekend! (Reading diaries are checked on Monday). Just a reminder that reading is the bedrock of success at school, and home-reading is absolutely vital to the children's learning.

thanks,  Mr. Handy

Scissors!  Please do not let your children bring scissors to school. Some scissors are sharper than they look, and I'd rather we used the scissors that I know are safe.

thanks,  Mr. Handy

Pencils!    Can you please make sure your child brings a pencil to school, and a new one ready if it's getting short.   I'm running out, and some of the children are developing a 'No need to look after my pencil; Mr. Handy will always give me a new one' attitude. My rule now is to only give a new school pencil if the children give me the old (short) school one.

What You Can Do To Help At Home!

Please help your child by supporting them with their homework, spellings and times tables. Times times is central to the Year Three maths curriculum, therefore you should encourage your child to practice and learn times tables on a daily basis. By the end of Year Four, it is essential that all children know their timestables up to 12x12 so they are prepared for upper KS2 maths.

Please click on the below links for example times table grids to practise with:
