Mrs Pickering

Welcome to Bassenthwaite's page.

Keep tuning in for updayes to the gallery!

Children are being encouraged to have pride in their work and we are really trying to support them in developing a fluent joined handwriting style. I have been really impressed with how hard they are trying with this in the sessions we have focused on this.

Our PE day this term will be Wednesday. This means PE kits can be worn to come to school in. As the weather is getting colder we encourgae children to make sure they come in prepared for outdoor lessons with joggers or leggings and their school jumper.

Homework will be set every Friday and is to be submitted by the following Thursday. Tasks are explained on Seesaw but to clarify our expectations for Year 3 and 4 are...

*Regular reading at home. We expect all children to have their reading record signed by a parent/carer at least 3 times per week. 

*Children to accessTimes Tables Rockstars and spend 10 minutes on it through the week.

* Spelling Shed to be used to help with learning weeekly spelling rules/patterns and a minimum of 5 games played.

Any questions or concerns , please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
