Miss Lauryn Wareing
My name is Miss Wareing and I teach Red Kites. This is my first ECT year after graduating from the University of Northampton this summer, so I am very excited to get started! Last year, I completed a three month placement in Golden Eagles so I feel like I already know the school very well.
My favourite things outside of school are reading, walking and watching films. I love Marvel and Harry Potter which most of the pupils can relate to!
My door is always open so please come to see me with any questions or worries that you have.
Every child need to have a Chacombe PE kit, including a jumper and joggers for any cold days. Red Kites learn PE on a Wednesday and Thursday. It is important that their P.E kits are in everyday as this can change some weeks.
Children have a spelling book that should always be in their book bag. Their spellings will be tested in class as a formal test every Monday. Their spellings come from the new Year 3 or Year 4 curriculum list. They need to practice them as often as possible at home, using as many different methods as possible - these could include the look, cover, write and check method, writing them out lots of times, saying them out loud, focusing on 1 each day etc. They will have new spellings to learn each week and it would also be great if they could practise any that they got incorrect in the test the week before. I've also put the year 1 and 2 spelling list below which is always useful to go back to and practise, as many children still find these spellings tricky. I hope you will be able to encourage your children to practise their spellings.

It is vitally important that the children are reading regularly at home to an adult. The more they can practice at home, the better they will become.
We are trying to listen to children read in class as often as possible, but it is quite difficult to fit it in with all of the other learning that is taking place. We have a weekly comprehension lesson to help with understanding the text.
We have a class guided reading session at least once a week, where we share the class text.
If your child has read 5 or more times at home, over the week, they will receive a house point and a sticker on their reading chart - this year the theme is 'Castle Quest'. Every time they achieve 5 stickers, they receive a certificate in celebration assembly.
The children are tested every Tuesday and if they achieve 12 / 12 for 2 consecutive weeks, they move onto the next times table. They will always know which times table they are working on and, again, it is vitally important that they practice regularly at home in lots of different ways.
Each week every child should read at home at least 5 times with an adult, learn their spellings and practice times tables.
