Home Reading

It is our expectation that all children read at home at least five times each week. Your child can earn points towards receiving a book to keep by reading regularly at home. Don't forget to record in your child's home learning diary each time they read.



Each child will come home with new spellings on a FRIDAY. These spellings will be in line with what we are learning in school. There will be an activity for the children to undertake for these spellings to get to know the word patterns, meanings and generally improve their spelling in writing. The activity will be due back into school by the following WEDMESDAY.


Home Learning

This will also be given out on a FRIDAY, but will need to be returned by the following WEDNESDAY please. It will consist of English, Maths or Creative tasks that support class learning for that week. Thank you for your continued support with this.
