Homework is given out on a Friday and is due in the following Tuesday unless it is a longer project piece. We expect the children to spend 30 minutes on each homework (Maths and English) as well as practising their spellings and times tables on a daily basis.
Children will independently change their own books this year. If your child has finished reading their book please discuss the characters and events with them, ensuring that they have understood what they have read. Please make sure that you are reading with your child every day. Every child who reads to an adult at home 4 times a week can colour their name on our reading display. Children who complete this every week will receive an award in assembly.
Our PE lessons are timetabled for Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
