The children will be given time within class to work on spelling rules and extend this knowledge through practise in school. They will also be given the spellings books to take home and practise for their weekly spelling test on a Thursday.


Times tables
According to The National Curriculum framework "children are expected to apply all of their multiplication tables and related division facts frequently, commit them to memory and use them confidently to make larger calculations". It is important that the children continue to practice their times tables.


Reading Books
Children have reading books and reading records that are sent home with them every Friday. Children are encouraged to read for at least 15 mins per evening and to record their reading in their reading records. Parents are asked to sign their child's diary on a Thursday evening if possible ready for a reading record check on a Friday.


Homework will be sent home with children every Friday in their homework folder. Please help to support your child with completing their homework which is due into school on a Wednesday.  


School diaries

Please feel free to write any queries or comments in your child's diary that your child can show their teacher in class. The diary is an invaluable tool for you to keep in regular contact with us!
