Vining

Andrew Blakeston - Class Teacher
Amy Hartzer - TA
Vining Class – Year 3
Justin Vining is an Indianapolis-based artist, specializing in landscapes and cityscapes. Originally from a small farm town in Indiana, Justin finds inspiration from American regionalist painters and WPA-era public works. In his progress as a full-time artist, his artwork has evolved from bright, whimsical watercolors and acrylics to more classical oil scenes. 
Mr Blakeson chose this artist as he believes the style of his original brightly coloured landscapes and cityscapes and more recently the more classical scenes will educate the children in the versatility of an artists’ skills.
 

Homework
 
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 2017 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.
 
Library
 
We have a shared library with many interesting books. Children are encouraged to use it.
 
 
PE
 
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.
