Learning at St. Luke's! What do you think?
Below I have tried to answer some questions that will hopefully give you more of an insight into our school day. If you do have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and see me.
Who will be my teachers in Creswell class?
Mr Bell, Miss Brown and Mrs Bellamy will be working in Creswell class. So if you have any questions please feel free to ask us any questions/concerns. The best time to speak to Mr Bell and Miss Brown is after school, as you can appreciate that during the morning we need to register and begin lessons. Mrs Bellamy will be on the door each morning to welcome the children in and to help them hang their coats/bags on their pegs. Alternatively you can always call the school to arrange a time to come in and see us.
What day do I need a P.E Kit and what shall I wear?
It is a good idea to bring your kit with you every Monday morning and hang it on your peg. Our P.E days are Tuesday and Thursday. This term they will need some shorts, T-shirt and some plimsolls/trainers.
When do I need to hand my homework in?
Each child will be given a book called a ‘Learning Journal’. In this book will be any messages from myself and a short homework task/spellings etc. This will be given out on a Friday and collected in on a Wednesday. The task will be a fun task either about something we have been learning about in class or researching something for the following week. Let me know if you have trouble accessing a computer at home for these tasks. The children will be rewarded for their efforts. You can also write a comment/message to me, in these books.
When will I be reading?
Your child will be doing a guided reading task each week in class but will also be bringing home a range of books for their enjoyment (choosing book from our library) and another book that is levelled for their ability. Your child will also be given a reading diary where you can write comments about their reading. If they get three messages in their diary over the week, they will be able to move their car around our race to read track and recieve a certificate when they get to the end. They will need their book bag, book and diary each day, which can be placed in a box in the classroom.
Can I bring my own toys in from home?
I would always advise that toys stay at home, unless they have been asked to bring something in for show and tell or for an activity in class. Each week I will choose a different group of children to take part in ‘Show and Tell’. Show and Tell days will be on Wednesday's and Friday's.
Will I be having a snack?
We will be having a piece of fruit/veg and drink each morning. If you wish for your child to have milk each day then ask at the office for more details. Water will always be on offer at anytime during the day.
If anyone different will be collecting your child, please let us know that morning.
I am looking forward to working with all of you.Mr Bell
