Maths Home Learning W/C 18th January 2021
Welcome back to the new school year, we hope the children are well and are looking forward to their final year at Elston Hall.
Welcome back, we cannot believe it is spring term already. We hope that you had a fantastic holiday and look forward to hearing all about your child’s Christmas.
Due to the forthcoming SATs in May, we have increased whole class reading to 2 sessions a week and added in a skills based English lesson to help with our writing. We will carry on with Science this term focusing on light initially and our new topic is: Life is a rollercoaster.
Children will continue to receive reading books linked to their ability from school. Reading journals will no longer be required but there will be an expectation of completing a reading comprehension every week - these will be given out on a Monday.
Children will receive 10 spellings from their class teacher which are related to their age, these will also be given out on a Monday/Tuesday and tested the following Monday/Tuesday.
Children will also receive weekly Maths homework on a Monday in order to apply skills taught in lessons, this maybe via MyMaths. We appreciate that this might seem a lot for the children however; we want to ensure we are providing the best opportunities to take the time to revise at home.
Revision books will also be sent out for reading and maths with your child this week. In order for us to share information with you regarding SATs, there will be a meeting on Monday 18th January at 4pm. A link will be sent for this teams meeting.
Our PE sessions will usually be held on a Monday and Thursday for classes 19 and 21 and Tuesday and Thursday for class 20.
Please be aware that these sessions may be flexible, therefore children need a PE kit (consisting of black shorts, a white top and pumps) in school at all times. As we get into the winter months, children will need an outdoor kit. Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days.
This is a very important term for the children and we look forward to excellent progress being made. If you have any concerns or worries, please arrange a time to speak to one of us, as you play a vital role in your child’s education.

We’re delighted to be able to announce the details of our open e-vents for September. Students and their parents will be able to access and experience a whole range of virtual experiences and activities which will help them make a decision about their secondary school in September 2021.
Families are encouraged to register their interest in our open events so they don’t miss out on any of the planned activities. The form takes 2 minutes to fill in and can be found here: CLICK HERE
Principal, Craig Cooling, said: “We’ve come such a long way in the past 12 months despite the pandemic and I am delighted to see that the progress we are making is being recognised. Our open events last year were a huge hit and this year we look forward to building on that success.
“Of course, we are disappointed that we can’t invite families in through the door but safety comes first for everyone. We’ve been meticulous in our planning and communications throughout the pandemic and it’s really important that we provide a safe, enjoyable experience for one of the biggest decisions that a family will make together.
“These open e-vents will give families the opportunity to make the right decision for their child’s education. We are a digitally capable school with a large community on social media, we’ll be engaging with prospective parents and utilising some of the skills that we’ve learned over lockdown to provide some fantastic content for the whole family to enjoy.”
