Reading: Your child will be reading daily in class through different subjects. However, we will try to listen to your child read as much as we can.  Please ensure you listen to your child read as often as possible during the week and note it in their reading record. The more they read the bigger advantage they will have. It is very important for your child's development to read as much as possible Please ensure your child brings their reading book into school every day.

 

Spellings: Your child will come home with a new list of spellings on a Monday which they need to practise each day.  Please encourage your child to read, sound out and write the words carefully. All children will be tested on the Friday.

 

Maths Homework:  All children will be set Sumdog homework on a Monday to be completed by the following Friday. This can be accessed through the school website. Each child has their own log in code that has been stuck in the front of each homework book. 

 

PE is a core subject and every child is expected to take part in these lessons.  Our lessons will take place on a Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit: black or navy shorts, plain white or blue school t-shirt and plimsolls in school for these days and that earrings have been removed. (We are not allowed to remove them.)
