Key Dates for the diary

Every Friday we will send a piece of homework out with your child for them to complete in the orange homework book that will be provided.
Your child’s homework will include the following:

A spelling list in preparation for a spelling test the following Friday
A piece of English homework
A piece of Maths homework

For each subject there are three levels to chose from to cater for the needs of all children. Your child will only need to select one activity from each subject.
Once completed, please can you take a photo and upload it onto class dojo for your child’s class teacher to see.
In addition all children will be given a reading book to take home. This book is colour banded to suit the level that your child is reading at. Each Friday your child should bring their book back into school to be changed, if they have not finished it, they can of course hold onto the book for longer.
