PE kit: Tuesday (Spring Term)

 

Please ensure your child has their PE kit at school ready for use and that all clothing is clearly named. Children should have indoor and outdoor shoes. As the children will often be taking part in PE lessons outside, a school hoodie ad jogging bottoms (not leggings) would also be recommended.

 

Ukulele: Monday

 

Homework

 

  • Maths – to be given out on Thursday and due in on Monday
  • Topic/Literacy – Learning Log to be given out on Thursday and due in on Monday. There may be circumstances where the Learning Log homework may take place over two weeks.
  • Reading a minimum of 3 times per week – ask your children questions about what they are reading and encourage them to read more often. We will be monitoring this every day in school through the reading records, which should be signed by an adult at home.
  • Spelling – to be given out on Wednesday and tested the following Wednesday
  • 5² mental maths – given out weekly on Thursday
  • Ukulele – to be practised weekly

 

Please ensure that you write a comment in your child’s homework book if you have any questions or comments. This will allow us to determine whether the work is of an appropriate level. We will respond to these comments and questions.
