Homework – We are continuing to use home learning menus this term where the children may choose any four activities to do from the menu. They will also receive maths home learning to complete each week and spellings (see spelling books).
Pupils need to read 4/5 nights a week which can be with an adult or pupils can discuss what they have read with an adult and these responses should be added to the reading record again by adult or pupil.
We have a large selection of books in class, but children are free to bring in books from home.
If you have any questions or concerns please do come and speak to me.
Many Thanks, Mr Tooze
