Could you please read daily with your children, learn weekly spellings and Maths facts daily and complete the spell zoo activity weekly. Maths homework is given out every Thursday and is to be handed in the following Tuesday.
The children will be given their new Spellings on a Thursday and they will have their spelling test on the following Thursday.
We may be doing PE outside throughout the year, therefore would you please provide warm jogging bottoms, sweat tops and trainers. For indoor PE, your child will need navy shorts, a plain white top and plimsolls. Please could you make sure that everything is labelled with your child’s name. No earrings are allowed to be worn in school.
Now that the weather is much warmer please remember to send your child into school with a water bottle and sun hat every day.
