Reading at home
Reading is an essential skill that children use throughout their learning. Please ensure that your child/ren are reading for 10-15 minutes everyday at home. This can be a book they have borrowed from school, or any other book they have at home. Please then ensure that their reading record is filled in with the date, name of book, comment on your child/ren's reading and sign.
It is important to ensure your child does the homework they are set. This will include comprehension, GPS and maths.
- Maths activities are set and due in on a WEDNESDAY.
- Comprehension activities are set and due in on a THURSDAY.
-GPS activities are set and due in on a FRIDAY.
- Children will also be tested weekly on their times tables and arithmetic. Please practise these at home with your child/ren.
-Homework help and drop-in sessions will be available lunchtimes for anyone who needs help or wasn’t sure what to do with their homework.
This term our PE units will be gymnastics and ball games.
Our PE days will be Mondays and Fridays.
P.E kits should be in everyday in case of changes to the timetable.
Please ensure that they are wearing white tops, black/navy shorts, socks, trainers or plimsolls. In colder weather, the children will be able to wear a plain black or navy tracksuit.
As usual, long hair needs to be tied back and earrings removed before coming to school.
