This term homework will be given out on a Friday and to be returned by Wednesday - there will be support sessions every Monday morning for children that may have struggled with a particular question or need support to complete it. If the children do not bring their homework in the following Wednesday they will be expected to complete it a break times until it is finished. Homework given in late may not be marked.
Your full PE kit should be in school at all times. PE lessons take place on a Friday.
Spelling tests will take place on a Friday morning with Mr VanDieren. If children get more than 30% of their spellings wrong there will be a retest the following Monday.
Reading books will be changed by the children when necessary.
Please encourage your children to read for at least 20 minutes every day. This is imperative for their reading development. Your child will have a set of questions on a bookmark that should be used to develop their understanding of a text - please use this to help them to develop this skill.
Term 1 Spellings
Throughout term 1 we will be focusing on the year 5 and 6 statutory words that all children are expected to know how to spell before they leave primary school. Please ensure that your child learns them every week.
