Ravens

Mrs Mitchell works hard to create exciting lessons so we can discover more about the world, develop our skills and challenge ourselves to achieve.

Welcome to Ravens

Welcome to Ravens’ class, we are found in the classroom at the end of the corridor, opposite the playing field. We are a friendly class: full of people eager to get to know you, make you feel welcome and help you feel at home.  Mrs. Mitchell is our teacher, she works hard to create exciting lessons so we can discover more about the world, develop our skills and challenge ourselves to achieve.

Homework

Reading – Your child will take a STAR Reader test each term which will determine which colour book-band they are on. We ask that they bring their school reading book home each day and that they spend time reading at home. When your child has finished a book, they will be able to take an Accelerated Reader quiz. Try to challenge yourself and complete three quizzes each term.

Spellings: Children in Year 2-6 have been given an assessment which will be repeated termly. This gives us a clear indication of strengths and weaknesses and specific areas that need more support. As part of our on-going teaching of spelling patterns and spelling rules, these will be addressed and taught in class. This will give us the opportunity to focus on individual gaps and any common misconceptions. We will provide feedback at parents meetings on specific areas of weakness and any specific spelling patterns/rules that your child needs support with. 

PE (PE kit)

Our PE days have changed. After half term, we will have PE on Thursdays and Fridays. On Thursday, we will be outside and on Friday, in the hall. Your child will need to come to school in their PE kit on those days.

Please make sure that long hair is tied up on PE days, and earrings, if worn, are removed. 

Trips and Visits

We are very lucky to be going on some fantastic trips this year and we will be taking part in some memorable experiences.  These include, having a planetarium in our school hall, a visit to Bletchley Park and the Peterborough Museum and we will be selling our own hand-made products in our Mini Enterprise topic. 

At the moment, all trips and visits are suspended, following Covid-19 guidelines. 

Class Assemblies and Performances

Every term (except for summer, due to our production) we will present a class assembly to our parents and carers. These give us the opportunity to share some of our exciting learning with you.
