We are learning about Enchanted Avalon in our learning. See our curriculum map in the link below to find out how we will be involving all curriculum areas.
Our PE day is currently Tuesday. However please make sure your child has their P.E. kits in every day in case of timetable changes. Could all clothing be clearly named also to avoid anything getting lost.
The children will be expected to read at least 3 times at home during the week. Please could you write in the name of the book and pages read and sign this in your child’s reading log. I will be collecting these in every Monday to monitor reading of the previous week. It is important that your child practises their reading at home to ensure they
make good progress.
Spellings will be sent home on a weekly basis to reinforce spelling patterns and strategies introduced throughout the week during phonic sessions. Please could you encourage your
child to practise these at home.
Times tables should be practised throughout the week as the children will be tested on these
in their maths lessons throughout the week. This should be ongoing so please try to practise
them with your child at any possible opportunity.
Reading, Spelling and Times Tables will be the main priority for your child’s homework.
Other pieces of homework may be sent home on occasions but this will not be every week and will not always be a written piece. Privilege time will be awarded on a Friday afternoon to
children who complete all homework.
