PE will take place on Mondays and Fridays. This half term the children will be doing Dance and Team Games. Please ensure your child has a named PE kit in school each day.
Homework is a little different this year as it will all be set online and will not be returned to the class teacher. There will be weekly spellings linked to the Read, Write, Inc. sounds learnt in class. There will also be a maths activity to consolidate the learning from the week. This will be set online on a Thursday and can be found under the 'Homework' tab at the bottom of the class page.
Reading books will be sent home each week. Please read these books more than once if possible to increase fluency. You will change these every Friday so please make sure your reading books are in school that day.
