Homework: This half-term we are trialling a new homework system Therefore, your child will receive a homework log,.They do a ‘little’ each night and there will no longer be a Literacy and Numeracy sheet given every Friday. Your child should practise their tables, spellings (individual or common exception/high frequency words) and read their reading or libary book. Homework logs (which will be stuck into your child’s 1:1 reading record) – need to be signed every night by an adult and they will then be checked every day by the class teacher.
PE: Our PE lessons are every Tuesday and Thursday. Kits are required in school every day.
