This term, PE will take place on a Thursday and Friday afternoon. 


The children will be given time within class to work on spelling rules and extend this knowledge through practise and a test in school. They will also be given a 'tricky words' spelling sheet to take home and practise for their weekly spelling test on a Friday.


Times tables
It is important that the children continue to practice their times tables. Children have times table practise in school and complete a 'times table challenge' on a Friday. 


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.


Children have a homework grid which is in their homework folder. Children are asked to choose an activity each week to complete and bring their homework in. Please help to support your child with completing their homework which is due into school on a Wednesday.
