The 'Welcome back to Wendell' event will begin with a meeting with the senior leaders to discuss the vision for the school for the next three years. There will also be an introduction to the 'Mind Up' curriculum being introduced this year. Following on from the meeting with the senior leaders, parents are invited to go to their children's classes to speak to their new class teachers. At that meeting, you will find out more about the procedures in class (when reading books and homework are due in), information about the curriculum and special events being planned. This is also an excellent opportunity to ask your new class teacher any questions. We understand that some families need to attend more than one class so please feel free to move from class to class. The event will finish at 4:30pm.

Homework - is given out every Friday for Maths and English. Children need to return both books on the following Thursday.
Reading - Children are also expected to read for 20 minutes every evening either with you or alone and they need to practise their times tables, which will be tested on Thursdays. Books will be changed on a Monday and a Thursday. Children will also be given spelling rules to learn each week and these will be tested on Fridays.
Water - It is vital that your child brings water to school so that they can drink during lessons. This is one way to ensure that their brains are working to their full potential. Please make sure your child refills their water bottle at home every evening to avoid disrupting our learning time.
Uniform - Please make sure your child wears their school uniform every day.
