English Homework and spellings:

Homework is  now set on Google Classroom and allows the children to interact freely with me and with other class mates.  For English homework I will set weekly tasks online and provide you with a reading book for which you can keep for a week at home. The Lemur class will change their books every Tuesday so please make sure your reading book is in school that day. Even if you haven't managed to finish the book please do still bring it in so we can check your progress with it.

You can also read online at https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/

Maths Homework

You will find your maths homework on either google classroom or on the my maths website and the log in has been sent home individually.

Please complete the week that has been set online.

Thank you,

Miss Raissis :)
