4 Our new curriculum will incorporate the most successful elements of our existing curriculum with the innovation and creativity of the new Cornerstones curriculum materials whilst also ensuring full coverage of the new National Curriculum. Curriculum themes and projects have been chosen to promote pupil choice, high levels of engagement, enjoyment of learning and challenge for all pupils. An emphasis on the development of life-long learners with the school’s key values and the building of learning power will underpin all teaching and learning. Outdoor learning and the development of cultural diversity should be evident throughout studies in all year groups.

7 Each week, in school the children will have the following:  A guided reading session with an adult.  Opportunities to read individually, and for pleasure.  A visit to the school library. At home we would like the children to:  Read every day or at least five times a week, and record this home reading in their home/school diaries. They will bring home a reading book, and a book from the school library. They can also read books from home and record them in their diary.

8 The Maths objectives that we teach, are clustered into five blocks, which are repeated each term. The blocks are:  Block A: Counting, partitioning and calculating  Block B: Securing number facts, understanding shape  Block C: Handling data and measures  Block D: Calculating, measuring and understanding shape  Block E: Securing number facts, relationships and calculating

9 We will set weekly Maths homework on MyMaths for this half term. Login at the top of the with the school's login details (Login: cheswick / Password: see your teacher).www.MyMaths.co.uk On the next page your child can enter their private login (which they have written in their home/school diary) in the pink 'My Portal' box. When your child has been set a task you will see the links to the tasks appear under MyTasks. When they have completed both pages of the Online Homework the scores will be saved to the database and the class teacher will then be able to view it. You can see all your results by clicking MyResults.

10 MyMaths is fantastic for viewing your child’s progress and for your child to see how well they have done. If a green light appears next to a topic, they have good skills in this area. If an amber light appears they still have difficulties. We recommend that they come and speak to us if they are struggling or try the lesson again before redoing the online homework. If a red light appears they need to go back and relearn the topic. Try the Lesson again and we will automatically speak to them to give them extra help. MyMaths can also be used for extra home study. You can find tasks and lessons using the MyMaths.co.uk Library.

11 Last year we introduced a highly successful Fit 4 Schools programme throughout the school which we will be continuing this year : The FIT stands for FUN INDIVIDUALISED TRAINING. Trained coaches come into school four times per academic year to activity test all children. Each child’s scores are recorded in the FIT 4 SCHOOLS database and a FUN INDIVIDUALISED TRAINING programme is created for each child. Two reports are sent into school so the School can monitor every child’s performance. Each child receives a FIT 4 SCHOOLS folder for them to keep their record and programme sheets in. Opportunities for children to complete their exercises, are embedded into the school week. After every activity test the children receive a new programme card with new challenging exercises so their fitness levels continue to improve. You as parents can make a huge difference too by encouraging your child to complete their exercises at home. In order for you to learn more about this programme, you are warmly invited to a parent workshop which we will be holding on Thursday 25 th September at 7:00pm.

12  On Thursdays pupils will have the opportunity to learn Woodwind. The instruments will be provided by The Solihull Music Service unless pupils wish to bring their own.  The children will be able to take their musical instrument home, once a consent and insurance agreement has been signed by yourselves.

13  The children will need to have their PE kit in school on PE days (Monday and Friday.)  Girls will need to tie long hair back and remove their earrings for PE lessons (or bring some tape to cover them over.)  All uniform including PE kit needs to be named clearly.  Trainers for outside to be worn with jogging bottoms and jumper  Shorts and T-shirt to be worn during indoor P.E

14 The children will have the following equipment provided by school that they must bring to school everyday:  Plastic folder to carry letters/homework books etc  Home/school diary It would be really useful if they had the following equipment:  Small pencil case with a pencil, rubber, sharpener and a small selection of pencil crayons.  Plastic water bottle  A piece of fruit for snack

15  These diaries are designed to encourage strong home/school communication. We will use these to send home reminders and record any additional homework, other than the set homework.  Please use these to record home reading, and to get a message to a member of staff. However, you will need to remind the children to show us their diary if there is a message in it, as these diaries will not be looked at every day.

16  At the front of the diaries are some important forms that need to be read and signed as soon as possible please. There is also Cheswick Green’s Home/School Agreement which outlines the important role that we each play, in ensuring that your child’s time at school is happy and successful. We would appreciate you reading and signing this agreement with your child.  Please sign the diaries on a weekly basis to acknowledge that you have seen any messages or homework set.

17  We have a brand new website which will be evolving over the coming year.  On year group pages, each class has their own Blog which will give you a real insight into what we are getting up to at school. We would encourage children to add to this blog at home by visiting our school website.  Each class also has a homework page, which will give an overview of the expectations for the year. We also be setting homework from this page in the coming weeks.

18 The internet has changed all of our lives, particularly our children’s. For parents and carers this opens up a whole new world of things to be aware of. For many of us, this can all be a bit too much. You might be struggling to keep up with the things your child is doing online, you might wonder whether what they are doing is safe. Some example case studies have shown children to be exposed to: Cyberbullying Grooming Inappropriate websites Losing control over pictures or videos Viruses or hacking https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Primary/Risks/Cyberbullying/ https://www.thinkuknow.co.uk/parents/Primary/Conversation- Starters/Go-to-the-movies/Jigsaw/

19 Talk to your child about what they're doing online Know what connects to the Internet mobile phones, game consoles, iPads, Tv. Make sure children know name of your wifi so they're not connecting to a neighbours wifi with different settings Keep devices which connect to the Internet in a family space Know the age appropriateness of the games your children are playing (especially when they can connect to a camera or headset) Set up parental controls on devices which link to the Internet Grow as your child grows with the Internet Let them know that the Internet is an amazing place to explore and learn as long as they know how to use it properly

20 Each week the children will have the following homework:  Home Reading (at least 5x a week – 20mins)  Spellings (set and tested on a Monday)  Maths (set on a Friday, to be handed in on a Monday at the end of the day)  Literacy (set on a Monday and to be handed in on a Friday)

21  We will actively encourage the children to complete homework set, and would value your support in this endeavour. A piece of homework should take no longer than about 30 minutes.  If homework has not been completed, we will record this in the home school diaries to ensure you are fully aware.  If homework becomes a particular issue/ or concern to you, please come and talk to us about it, at your earliest convenience.

22  The children will continue to learn spelling patterns and rules.  Each week they will bring home some spellings linked to the learning that has taken place in school.  They will also be given words which do not follow any spelling patterns to learn.

23 We want the children to have a happy and successful year, and so there are lots of ways in which we will encourage good behaviour, effort and achievement: Positive verbal and written feedback Stickers Star of the week Raffle tickets Behaviour zones with the opportunity to earn golden time and special diamond class privileges.

24  Next year the SATs will take place on 11 th May  All pupils must a attend this week (by hook or by crook!)  We will be ‘gearing up’ for the SATs from the start of the new year onwards.  I will be running a revision club after school nearer the time for anyone who wishes to attend  Encourage your child to do their best (and make sure they eat breakfast!)

25  On 15th September for one week, children have the opportunity to take up cycling proficiency in order to become road safe on their bikes.  Children will need a bike which is in good condition and a helmet!

26  In the Summer term, we are proposing to take the children on a five day residential to Condover Hall. It is a well established trip at Cheswick Green and the children always have a fantastic time.  Next year it will take place on 18 th May-22nd May 2015.

27  Last year we introduced a highly successful Fit 4 Schools programme throughout the school which we will be continuing this year :  The FIT stands for FUN INDIVIDUALISED TRAINING.

In order for you to learn more about this programme, you are warmly invited to a parent workshop which we will be holding on Thursday 25 th September at 7:00pm.

28 Your child will reap the benefits if we work in partnership, therefore, if we have an issue or concern during the year, we will endeavour to talk to you about it as soon as possible. We would strongly encourage you to do the same. There are lots of ways to contact us:  Speak to us before or after school to arrange an appointment.  Write a note in your child’s home/school diary, or arrange an appointment with us though the school office.

29  We look forward to working alongside you this year.  We will inform you of parent share dates as and when they take place and also, most importantly, the date for our leavers assembly.  Please help your child to make the most of their last year at Cheswick Green, it will go by so fast!  Thank you for attending this information evening – we value your support.
