Homework will be given out every Friday and will need to be returned the following Thursday morning. Homework this term will be fun activities, were we will need to use life skills to help us complete.
Homework is important to ensure your son/charge reaches their full potential and I would really appreciate your support in ensuring it is completed to the best of your son/charges ability and returned on time.
Reading books will be given out each week in class. This will include one reading book/ magazine of your son/charges choice and one that will challenge their reading skills. Your son/charge will spend time in class during the week, reading to develop their skills and help them make progress. Reading should also be completed with an adult 3 times per week and record in your son/charges reading diary.
This term, Sigma will be taking part in workshops and activities around wisdom and curiosity.
Sigma have previously visited a Synagogue as part of the Religious Education curriculum. We also visited Chester Zoo and had a lovely day in the snow! Sigma also visited Beeston Castle as part of our History topic. During the visit to Beeston Castle, pupils took part in three activities that showed the progression within the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. Both pupils and staff had a great day out!
