Reading records will be checked every Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has made at least three responsive reading comments. These comments must be responsive, for example: your child’s thoughts on a character or event; specific word choices that your child thinks are goo or could requite improvement; a new word and its definition; how your child if feeling while reading this book and why or a prediction.
Home learning will be sent home the first week of each term and will include spellings, a mental maths challenge and a suggested projects list.
The children will be doing PE on Tuesdays and Fridays, however kits should be in school all week in case of additional sessions. Year 6 will go swimming on Tuesday afternoons in Autumn 2, Spring 2 and Summer 2. Please look after your child’s swim hat; replacement hats cost £1 at the swimming centre.
Please ensure water bottles and belongings are clearly labelled.
