Thank you for all the parents that helped their children collect sponsors and came to read with their children. It has been a great book week.
Homework this term - We are basing homework around the KS1 SAT's this term to support work being done in school. So we will be giving your child practise questions to try. Please allow your child to do these independently so we can identify what areas we need to support your child more on. If any questions about this please see class teachers.
PE kits need to be brought to school every Monday and taken home and washed on a Friday. That way kits will always be available when they are needed.
Spellings are given every Friday. Please learn these for a test the following Friday.
Reading books are changed weekly. Please read with your child each night and ensure reading books are always in your child’s book bag when they come to school.
