Homework Arrangements

Monday    Reading



Reading records & homework to be handed in.







Spellings & Homework linked to the curriculum handed out











Spelling tests are on a Monday morning. Children should practise for several shorter periods rather than one long one to maximise their learning potential. Children need to have their book bags in school everyday with their reading books and records so they can be checked and changed. Children need to read at least 5 times a week to move up the class reading wall and make good progress.


PE will be on a Monday afternoon, please ensure your child brings their PE kit so that they can participate in weekly PE lessons.
