Home Learning

Reading books and reading records should be brought to school every day. The reading records have pages at the front where your child should record the books being read and pages for activity responses towards the back.  So as to not stifle your child’s creativity, please note that the activity can be done on larger pieces of paper and in 3D form etc. This has been reiterated to the children in the class. The record should be handed into your child’s teacher every Monday and it will be returned to them by Wednesday of the same week.

The ‘Good Times’ Tables Challenge will take place on different days for different classes.  Please refer to your child’s timetable for this information.

The home learning grid is filled with creative ideas and we expect all children to complete one English, one Maths and one Creative task every half term.  Please speak to your child’s teacher if your child finds one subject more challenging and would need extra support (than considered normal) to complete it.

Enrichment

The children will be visiting the Thames River Boat project at Teddington Lock this half-term. We welcome parent helpers on this trip and ask that if you would like to assist us that you contact the main office.  It is a requirement of the Latchmere School that all helpers have DBS clearance.

Bikeability

During the Autumn and Spring term, your child will get the opportunity to do Bikeability. This is a week’s course that will develop your child’s cycling skills and confidence when cycling. If you would like your child to attend this course during school time please fill in the form attached and send back to the office.

Support Sheets

Attached to this letter are some sheets that will help you to support your child with their learning. We hope that you find them useful.

If you need further clarification about anything this term please do not hesitate to talk to your child’s class teacher.
