Daily reading is essential. Reading with your child and discussing the text with them is significant in developing their comprehension and inference skills. Please ensure your child has their reading record in school as this is checked daily.
Spellings will be sent home on a Friday and books need to be handed in on a Wednesday. Children will be tested every Friday and they will have the opportunity to learn their spellings at school.
Mental Arithmetic Maths books will also be sent home on a Friday and books need to be handed in on a Wednesday. Please ensure children complete only one test per week and no more or less.
Every week, children will play the Golden 100 Times Tables game. It is a great and fun way to practise those times tables.

Children will have PE lessons every Wednesday and swimming on Friday. Please ensure children have suitable footwear please and the correct PE kit/swim wear. Please do not forget that all Kit should be labelled.
