Amethyst 2021 - 2022

Miss Winder

Hello and welcome to the Amethyst class page,

We hope you find it helpful. It will be regularly updated to reflect our current learning. 

IN THE EVENT OF YOUR CHILD HAVING TO SELF ISSOLATE, PLEASE COMPLETE THE HOME LEARNING PACK ATTACHED TO THIS PAGE. Please also encourage reading daily through Bug Club and Oxford Reading Buddy in order to reduce further gaps in learning. 

Extra Work: We have looked at Oak National Academy in class- it is a great resource for catch-up revision work and daily lessons if your are well but at home. Each lesson delivered by a teacher with a pre-recorded video as well as quizzes, worksheets and creative activities. It’s all easy to use, there’s no login or password, you can access our lessons on any device, and pupils only need materials they can find at home.

Important information

Communication: We will continue to use Class Dojo to keep in contact with parents/carers and update you on our learning journey. Class Dojo will also be used as a reward system.

PE: Amethyst have PE on a Monday. Children should come into school in their full PE kit.

Swimming: Amethyst have swimming lessons on Tuesday afternoons. Children should come to school with a swimming kit.

Homework: Homework will be given out on Monday and is due back on Friday. Homework will support all class learning and so it is important that homework is completed every week. Homework will be discussed in class and any questions about the homework will be answered on Monday afternoons before it being sent home. If you find that your child is struggling with their homework, I am more than happy to support you on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday before homework is due back in. 

Spellings: Spelling will always be included within children’s homework, therefore spellings will be set on a Monday. Amethyst will be tested on the following Monday. 

Times tables: Practicing your times tables every night via Times Tables Rock Stars is also encouraged to help with number fluency which will, in turn, help your child make connections with other Maths problems that they encounter. Every week we will be focusing on particular times table and this will be disclosed on a Monday and tested the following Monday. 

Reading: Reading is encouraged every evening. Reading books from school are provided but, please also take advantage of both Oxford Reading Buddy and Bug Club online at home as well as enjoying your own books and reading for pleasure - your log in details for these have been stuck in at the back of your reading records. Please log all the reading that you do (outside of Bug Club or Oxford Reading Buddy) in your reading records and hand it in to Miss Winder every day. All books that are sent home must be returned to school when you are finished with them.
