PE WILL BE EVERY Thursday – children are to come in their kits and bring their uniform to school to change in to.

HOMEWORK – homework will be given out every Wednesday and due back in to school on Tuesday.   Spellings will also be given out on Thursday and tested the following week. Please ensure children are practising as often as possible at home. Children will also need to ensure they know the meaning of the spelling as they will be asked to use the word in a sentence. 

Reading – Children should be reading at home every night and their diary signed by a guardian. Please aim to read at least 5 pages each night to support children progressing through their reading levels. Children will also have a reading for pleasure book from the school library to enjoy at home.
