Reading records will be checked every Wednesday. Please ensure that your child has made at least three 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 good or could require improvement; a new word and its definition; how your child is feeling while reading this book and why or a prediction. Your child was given a bookmark with questions to prompt them when writing their comments.
Home learning will be sent home the first Friday of each term and will include spellings, a mental maths challenge and a suggested projects list.
The children will be doing PE on, Wednesdays and Friday, however kits should be in school all week in case of additional sessions. Year 5 will go swimming on Tuesday afternoons in Autumn 1, Spring 1 and Summer 1. Please look after your child’s swim hat; replacement hats cost £1 at the swimming centre.
Please ensure belongings are clearly labelled.
