THINGS TO REMEMBER THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Please try to read every night at home. This can be a reading book from school, a story book from home or a library book. It is still really important for your child to expand their vocabulary and develop their reading stamina. They should be reading for at least 30 minutes every night.
Literacy homework will be sent home in a book. It will be set on a Friday and is due in on a Thursday. Please encourage your child to speak to adult in school if they need any help.
Numeracy homework will be sent home in a book and the children will also be set a mymaths task each week. Homework is set on a Friday and due in on a Thursday.
If your child can't find their mymaths password - there is a list in the classroom.
Spellings are set on a Monday and tested on a Friday. The children's spelling scores will be sent home by text so you can see how your child is doing.
