Welcome to our class page!
Please visit our school Twitter account @CharlesPrimary1 to find photographs of all of our latest learning.
We will continue to post updates and information to our Class Dojo page. Please download the app and sign up to notifications.
Your child will be given homework that will enhance the curriculum that they are following in school and will help to improve their learning. We greatly appreciate parental support and encourage parents to become involved in their children’s learning. Research has shown that support from home significantly improves a child’s achievement in school. Homework will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned the following Thursday.
As a School we teach Phonics using Read Write Inc.
Reading with your Child at home is so important.
Each week your child will be sent home with Read Write Inc Storybooks and Book Bag books linked to their current learning. They will also be able to access a range of books on Oxford Owl. Passwords have been sent home please ask if you need the details again.
We ask that you read at home with your child each night for approximately 15 minutes and write a comment in their reading record books each time your child reads at home. We would ask you read no more than a few pages each time and spend time discussing the story and asking your child questions in order for your child to fully understand the books. Please try and read your child’s home reading book more than once so ensure they fully understand the text.
We use the maths scheme ‘White Rose Maths’ in school. Your child has been sent home with a ‘Times Tables Rock Stars’ log in which they should access as often as possible.
This term, we will have PE on Thursdays. This half term we will be doing Ball Skills with our Happy Hedgehogs PE coach.
Please make sure your child comes into school each Thursday wearing their PE kit.
We will do a short spelling on a Friday. I will post spellings on Class Dojo each Monday for the children to practice that week at home in preparation for Friday.

If you have a Netflix account and go to the kids section you can watch ‘Storybots’. Each animation focuses on a different topic and are educational, informative and entertaining. Alternatively, if you search ‘Storybots’ on youtube you can access some of the episodes.
Cosmic Kids Yoga have videos which teach Yoga through story. They include mindfulness and meditation episodes to relax kids and ease any anxiety or worry they may have.
