How to stay safe online - Kingfisher Class Rules

Welcome back to the 2020 New Year!


The Kingfishers have come back ready to learn, showing excellent listening skills and putting effort and hard work into everything they do. 


Some reminders!


Water bottles:

Remember to bring your water bottle every day and take it home every evening. Water can be accessed during lessons at all times but the children are mindful that this should not interrupt their listening and completion of tasks/activities.


P.E.:  Indoors on Monday afternoons and Outdoors on Friday afternoons. 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:  Friday is the word ...!

- Reading: 10-15 mins every evening - please listen to your child read as often as possible

- Spellings: new spellings on Fridays; test the following Friday - please encourage your child to practise regularly! Use!

- Times tables: these help with so many areas of maths; please encourage your child to practise 10-15 mins every day (TT Rockstars and see website links on times tables practice sheets sent home)

- MyMaths: this is set every Friday, due the following Friday - the tasks are set to consolidate learning from the week; it is important that your child completes this homework every week ...

- Topic - tasks across a range of subjects are set every Friday (and a copy will appear on your Class Page too!), usually due the following Friday (more complex tasks will be given two weeks to complete). Please encourage your child to complete these tasks independently, but give them support and help for more challenging tasks - when we're challenged, we're learning!
