Welcome to the autumn term. During this half term we have been working hard in our literacy looking at different traditional tales. In numeracy we are learning our multiplications of 2, 5 and 10.
You will get homework every Wednesday, to be handed in on Mondays.
You must practise your spellings that you have been learning in school at home for a test on Monday.
If you have home access to Education City you can complete homework tasks set on the site.
To become a super reader and reach the top of the reading wall you need to read at least 5 times a week at home. You must get your reading record signed by an adult and hand it in on Monday. Remember your reading book should be in school everyday.
We do PE every thursday, but always make sure your kit is in school. You must wear dark shorts (blue or black) and a white t-shirt. Clothing must not have any brand names.
