TTRockStars - England Rocks 2021

We are taking part in a huge competition against schools from all over England.  All you need to do is play on TTRockStars and get as many questions right as you can!

  • The competition runs from 7.30am on Monday 8th November, to 7.30pm on Thursday 11th November.
  • To take part, login into TTRockStars as normal.
  • Every correct answer will earn your class a point.
  • You can play in any game mode.
  • There is a 1-hour time limit per person, per day.  This means that your points will only count for the first hour that you play.  (You do not have to play for 1-hour all in one go, you can split it up into smaller bits.)
  • Winning classes in the school and in the country will get a prize!

This is a great way to practise your times tables and also to see just how good your class, and Balliol can be, against schools all over England.  Good luck!

Miss Freer

Welcome Willow class!

 

I am so excited to see you on Monday 6th September . It is going to be a brilliant year for us and I cannot wait to get to know each of you :) 

 

There are just a few reminders below to help ease you back into school:

 

Class Teacher:  Miss F Freer

Other adults:  Mrs Boland

 

Communication:

An adult will be available at the beginning and end of the school day if there are any major concerns.You can always contact me via our class email - willow@balliolschool.co.uk!

 

Water bottles:

Please bring your water bottle every day and take it home every evening. Water can be accessed during lessons at all times (the children will be aware that this should not interrupt their listening and completion of tasks/activities) and can be used at lunchtimes.

 

P.E.: 

This term, Willow’s P.E. will be on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons, both indoors and  outside. On these P.E. days, children must come to school in their P.E. kit. Please ensure correct Balliol P.E. kit is worn and, in colder weather, that warm long-legged and long-sleeved clothing is provided, alongside appropriate footwear. 

 

Homework: 

 

We appreciate and thank you for all the support you give to the children in relation to their home learning.  Below is what we hope is useful information for you to continue with this support.

 

Reading: Children will have a reading book to take home to share and read with you. They will be able to change these throughout the week, Please listen to your child read as often as possible for 10-15 minutes at least 3-4 times a week. 

 

Spellings: Children will have new spellings every week with a dictation test on Fridays. Spellings will of course be available on this class page so please encourage your child to practise at home regularly too! 

 

 Times tables: these help with so many areas of maths; please encourage your child to practise 10-15 minutes every day. (TT Rockstars) 

 

MyMaths: This will be set every Friday, due the following Friday - the tasks are set to consolidate learning from the week.

 

Maths and English: We will continue to set children homework in their SPAG and Maths books based on their learning from the week. This will be set on a Friday and expected back in on the Thursday to be marked.
