Jackson Pollock was born in Wyoming, in the United States.Jackson Pollock’s work wasn’t created in the traditional ways with the traditional painter’s tools. Instead of using a brush and an easel, Pollock placed his canvases on the floor and used sticks, dripping fluid, sand and knives to add paint. He used flinging, dripping, pouring and splattering techniques, using the movements of his whole body to control the flow of the paint.
Children will be given a list of Spellings every Monday which need to be learnt for the following Monday.
On Mondays the homework book is sent home. One week the work will be based on Literacy or Phonics and the following week the focus will be Maths.
From January the children will also take home a “KIRFs” (Key Instant Recall Facts) sheet each half term to be learnt.
Reading is also very important. We encourage children to read with an adult as often as possible. We will be sending home a new book on a weekly basis. Please sign the reading record when you read with your child/children.
We have a shared library with many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.
Physical Education takes place twice a week. It is very important that PE kits are kept in school at all times. Please mark each item clearly - that includes plimsolls as it can quite difficult for your child to find them when they are all changing at once.
We have three school trips a year, one each term.
More information about what your child is learning in school can be found on the curriculum map
