PE

 

Our PE day is on a Wednesday. Please remember to come in your Thomas Barnes PE kit and have all items labelled.

Reading 

 

Reading is a really important skill, especially for young children, as it is the foundation for so many other aspects of learning. Please read with your child every night for at least 5 minutes to help them to read fluently and accurately. Each Friday, Mrs Gaffiney will count how many times your child has read by checking the signatures in their diaries. This is turned into merits, and your child can earn up to 5 extra merits per week by reading at home. Your child has the opportunity to change their book each day in school.

Spellings

 

Each week your child will bring home new spellings in their purple books to learn. The book will come home each Friday and they must be returned to school the following Friday. Use the 'Making Spellings Memorable' document to help you find fun and different ways to practice the spellings.

Merits

 

Each day, the children have the opportunity to earn merit points in class. It can be through good work, being kind and helpful, being polite or achieving the Star of the Day. These merit points are added up each term by the staff and can be spent by the children on prizes or fun activities at the end of each term. The children will be informed when it is time to spend their points.

If you have any questions for Miss Allister or Mrs Gaffiney, please email the office at office@thomasbarnes.staffs.sch.uk.

 

Please be aware that Miss Allister is available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Gaffiney is available Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.
