If you click the image it will open up a larger version in a new window. It can also be downloaded in PDF format at the bottom of the page.

Homework

Homework can be found by clicking on the yellow tabs below. We also have a termly project which is linked to something we are learning about at school.

Reading

Please make sure that your read with your child at least three times a week. Your child will then need to complete whichever reading task they have been set for that week in their yellow reading book.

Spellings

Read the words and identify what is ‘tricky’ about them.

Use the ‘look, write, check’ method to practise spelling the word. Other good strategies include using fridge magnets, looking out for the word in a reading book or rainbow writing where you repeat writing out the word using as many different colours as you can.

Practise improving your handwriting by copying out the spellings.

PE Kits stay in school, and we send them home once every half-term to be washed. For information about our kit, see the UNIFORM information.
