Your P.E day this year is Friday.
Please ensure that your children’s P.E kits are in school everyday, they will be sent home to be washed at the end of every term.
Reading books – Reading books will still be sent home for your child to read every night. They will get 2HP for every signature showing that they have read that day and 5 extra at the end of the week if they have read every day.
Books will be put in ‘book quarantine’ after being read and kept their until the following week to ensure they are safe to send home with a new child.
Homework/spellings – spelling will be given each Friday to be tested the following Friday. It is important that your child practices their spellings every night.
Dip and dos can be found on our jotter page. These are optional extras for your children.
Jotter – In the instance of self-isolation your will find the class work for the week on our year five jotter page. This is so that your child does not miss out on important learning and therefore does not fall behind their peers.
Contacting class teachers – if you need to contact your child’s class teacher please go through the office, a phone call can be arranged at a convenient time.
Jotter Learning Platform
At St Michael’s we subscribe to Jotter; the learning platform designed with primary schools in mind. Children are growing up in a fast-changing online world and we strive to ensure that they gain the essential skills both within and beyond school. Teachers will keep you up-to-date with your child’s learning. Your child will be able to download and upload work and complete tasks. There will be pages where much of what you see has been created by the children themselves. This is their chance to shine as they write content and collaborate on research.
Jotter gives children the opportunity to explore concepts such as wikis and blogs in a safe environment. We hope you enjoy using Jotter as much as we do. To log in please type in your child’s username and password. To obtain this information please speak to your class teacher.
