We will be sharing with you some of our learning and any information about up and coming events.
Autumn Term 2017
Your child will have one piece of homework set every week on a Thursday based upon class work. Details of this will be written in the homework diary and should be completed by the following Monday.
Children will receive a list of spellings to learn ready for their next tracks session. Each child follows an individual spellings programme and the wordlist is formed from children’s individual work.
Children all have a ‘home reading book’ to enable them to practice reading skills, and develop fluency and expression. These books are monitored by staff every week for suitability. When your child has completed a book, he/she should put it in the basket in the classroom so it can be checked and changed. We expect children to read 5 times at home during the week. Please sign the reading record book and say how the session went and alert us to any difficulties experienced.

Signing the homework diary
Please sign the homework diary on a daily basis and note what homework (reading/spellings/set homework/times tables) has been undertaken by your child. Please sign the bottom right hand page each week. We award a brick for completed diary pages to encourage children to develop good habits which will be of benefit in Year 4 and transition to upper key stage 2.
