Key information

Expectations

 

We have PE on Mondays and Wednesdays  so please make sure you come in your kit. 

 

 

We expect the children to be reading at least three times per week at home and for it to be recorded in their reading diary. Please make sure their books and diaries come into school daily for us check  for messages, sign to then go home. It can include any genre of book, comics, newspapers, fiction, non-fiction or whatever takes their fancy.  We just want it to be a pleasurable time for them and to develop a love of reading.  We really enjoy listening to the children's conversations about the books they are enjoying at home.

 

 

Home learning

Spellings are set on a Monday via Spelling Shed and in their diaries. The children will practise spelling rules throughout the week and apply in their written work.

Children need to be practicing their times tables. This can be through logging onto their Times Table Rockstars account as well as playing several games online.  If the children wanted to have a bit of a sing and dance whilst practicing their times tables then there are lots of different times tables songs on the BBC SuperMovers website. 

Please make sure you are connected to Google Classroom so we can keep in contact with any other relevant information.
