Welcome back to School!

Welcome back to School! I hope you have had a restful Summer break.

The Autumn Term is usually very busy and productive, and this should be a great one.

First of all, if you have not yet signed up to our Class Dojo page, please do so as soon as possible, as this will be the easiest way for us to communicate regularly. All children were given login codes during transition day, in July, but if you have misplaced your letter, do not worry, as another copy will be sent home to those who are yet to connect in the next few days.

We have already published an important update to Class Dojo today, so make sure to check it out.

A termly class letter will be also circulated next week, but please see below for some key information you might find useful:

Homework books will be issued early next week and are due back each Monday.  Reading books and Reading Records will also be sent home as soon as possible and should be brought to School every day, so these can be regularly checked and books changed.

Our weekly tests (times tables and spellings) will take place on Mondays. Weekly spelling lists will be sent home for children to practise in their homework books, and also published as an online “assignment” on Spelling Shed. For the Times Tables test, children will progress at their own pace. Everyone starts at 10x table and will be informed when they have progressed to the next level. Year 3 children will continue from where they were at the end of Y2. All children will be given a weekly times table homework activity related to their next test and well as assignments on Maths Shed to practise. Login details for Ed Shed (which includes Spelling Shed and Maths Shed) can be found inside the Homework Books.

PE sessions will take place on a Wednesday and Friday and children are expected to come to school wearing their PE kits. Our PE sessions will start next week. 

During the first half-term, we will also have Forest School sessions on Tuesdays, when children should come to School wearing suitable clothing for these sessions.

It is generally recommended that your child should be heard reading at least 3 times a week but, for our age group, ideally this would be done daily. This is the most important part of their homework, as reading successfully is essential for the children to access the rest of the curriculum. Listening to your child read is important to support the development of their decoding skills and well as build fluency and expression in their reading. It is also great to share a book together and your child will still love to hear you read to them.

I hope this information is useful. Should you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Mrs Crowe

Reading during the Summer Holidays (and beyond)!

As the Summer Holidays approach, we would like to encourage all children to continue reading throughout the break, so we have collated a few ways to keep up with your reading routines at home during the coming weeks.

Since the first lockdown, we have encouraged families to use the Oxford Owl website, which contains hundreds of free e-books. Parents will need to register, but it is all completely free and you can then access a variety of ebooks matching your child’s current levels: https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/

Another option is to sign-up to a paid book rental service. We have recently started using the Reading Chest and and we recommend it. Packages start at £10 a month, and that includes a selection of up to 6 books a month, posted to your address, in the appropriate reading level for your child. There are also packages available for families with multiple children, etc. More details can be found on https://www.readingchest.co.uk/prices-and-packages

Obviously, the local libraries are also currently open, although some services are operating on a reduced basis. To find out more about your local library, please visit: https://www.shropshire.gov.uk/libraries/find-a-library/

And don’t forget to sign-up to the annual Summer Reading Challenge! It is always great fun and the children love it. https://summerreadingchallenge.org.uk/

It’s really important that the children keep reading regularly during their break. If you have any questions about helping your child with their reading, please contact your current or new Class Teacher and they will be happy to assist you.

 

Afterschool Sports Sessions – Tiger Class

Rhino class will be taking part in their last afterschool sports session with Connor tomorrow, and when we return after half term it will be time for Tiger pupils to take part.

Tiger Class sessions are the 9th, 16th and 23rd June

Club starts at 3:15 and finishes at 4:15. The cost of all three sessions is £10. Payment to be made via School Gateway.

Its not too late to sign up for these Tiger sessions, please come to the school office and speak to Mrs Smith, who will arrange everything.

Tiger Jungle Time!

I managed to get a couple of photos during our first Tiger Jungle session today. This last one was during the “briefing”, when the children were reminded of the rules of Forest School and told about today’s task (which was all about birdwatching).

The weather was perfect for it and it was a rather wonderful way to finish the day.

Homework books have been sent home and spelling lists have been updated on the School’s website.

Tomorrow, Mrs Foster is back so I’ll be available again on Monday.

Have a lovely weekend.
Mrs Crowe

 

School Menu’s – Panda and Tiger Class

We have sent home a lunch menu tonight with all children in Panda and Tiger Class.

Please can we ask that you help your child decide on an option for their lunch the following day. The younger ones are struggling at the moment choosing what they would like for their lunch, and this is taking up a considerably amount of time each morning.

If your child does not like a choice from the menu, you can either supply them with a packed lunch or encourage them to try one of the two options available.

If you have any questions at all please do not hesitate to give school a ring on 01939 290834

Mrs Smith

 

Thank You

To all Parents and Careers,

From all of us at Myddle, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for all the support you have given us in helping to teach your children over the past 8 weeks. We know it hasn’t been easy, with many of you juggling work and caring for siblings while managing home schooling tasks.

We can’t begin to tell you how rewarding it has been to be regularly receiving feedback and photos of the children’s work. We know how hard this has been to keep on top of and we really have appreciated it.

We are all so excited to welcome your children back to school on Monday where we can take back the reins and give you all a very well deserved break.

We hope you all have a relaxing weekend.

Many thanks

Mr Glover

All back to School!

We are all very excited to welcome all Tigers back to School on Monday 8th March!

In preparation for that, we have asked everyone who has been learning from home for the past couple of months to complete a “Post Lockdown Jigsaw Puzzle”, so we can have a discussion about our feelings during this time.

We would like all children to complete one of these and bring it to School on Monday 8th March: Back to school feelings jigsaw

World Book Day

World Book Day

Next Thursday (4th March) is World Book Day. Although we can’t celebrate it as we usually do, we would still like to mark the occasion as it’s one of the children’s favourite days in our School calendar.

The first thing I would like you to do is to take a picture of your child reading in their favourite reading spot, so we can make a beautiful collage for our classroom when the children come back.

On the actual Day, we will only have book-themed activities and the children have been asked to bring a book to share with the rest with the class during the Zoom calls.

We will still dress up as a book character on the day, and it would be lovely for the children at home to do the same. Obviously, we are aware nobody is allowed to go out to shop for non-essential items, so please try and wear something you already have at home or get creative with outfits you can easily improvise. The character you choose to dress up as doesn’t have to be from the book you are sharing with the Class.

More details about the Day will be sent out closer to the date.
