Welcome to Redwood Class

Mrs Jones and Mrs Clements will be using this page to celebrate our work, keep you updated with what is happening in the classroom and communicate any information which might support the children’s learning at home.  There will be swimming, outdoor learning, school trips, visiting theatre productions and so many other exciting activities and adventures. 

  

Things to remember…

PE lessons are on a Thursday but PE kits should be in all week just in case!

Outdoor Learning is also on Thursdays so remember to bring your wellies and waterproof coats.

It has been proved that if children read at least 15 minutes everyday, they will have a significantly extended vocabulary to use when they are writing.  Reading should be recorded in their reading records.

Don’t forget to logon and do 10 minutes of Times Tables Rockstars or Doodle Maths three times a week to support their quick recall of times tables and mental maths.

Spellings are set and tested weekly. 

Home Learning

We understand that this is an unsettling time and we hope having access to these ideas and resources helps create a sense of routine to support your child’s learning. Equally we are aware that people have caring commitments and that every family will be doing their best day by day and as such, not every activity may be completed.

As a Trinity School teaching team, we are here to support you and your children during this unprecedented period.
