Welcome to Class 8!

 

Welcome to the Class 8 webpage!

The class teacher is Mrs Thomas, with Learning Support Assistants Mr Hindley and Mrs Clarke.

A lot of the learning that takes places and celebrations of children’s achievements will be shared via photographs, links and information on the learning platform SeeSaw. Should your child test positive for Covid-19, they will be able to access their work via their SeeSaw account.

 

Important Information

We have P.E on Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child’s full P.E. kit is in school for those days. PE kits will be sent home at the end of each half term.

 

All children will require a water bottle. Please ensure this contains water only. Children will be able to refill their bottles in class.

 

In order to keep everyone safe, please stand behind the marked area at drop off and pick up times.  This will ensure all children and staff have space to enter and exit their marked area safely. Remember to wear a face covering if you are able to.

 

Reading

It is very important that your child keeps up their reading at home. Children will still be expected to read at least four times a week.

Books and reading diaries are sent home every Monday and should be returned to school on Friday of the same week. Children will still be expected to read at least four times a week and this will be monitored by class teachers. Every time you read with your child, please sign and comment in their reading diary so that we can monitor and celebrate your efforts. 

Bug Club

All children have now been allocated a login for Bug Club. Bug Club gives your child access to at home reading books at their specific reading level. Children can access the reading books online and progress through the reading levels with your support at home. More information can be found in the letter below. 

Your child can login to Bug Club here: http://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk

Bug Club Parent Letter

If you are having trouble accessing Bug Club via your device, please try the following steps:

  1. Go to ‘Settings’ and select ‘Safari’
  2. Switch off ‘Prevent Cross-site tracking’

If you are still having problems, please contact your child’s class teacher and we will investigate further.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and support. 

 

Reading Plus

Some children are currently accessing Reading Plus in school. If so, they will be able to log in at home. Children can access stories online, which helps develop their fluency, understanding and vocabulary. Children’s progress can be monitored by myself, therefore, it’s a great way for me to see how your child is progressing.

Your child can log in to Reading Plus here: https://student.readingplus.com/seereader/api/sec/login
