Home work will be given out every Friday and handed back in on a Wednesday. There will be two pieces of homework usually one English and one Maths.
All children will read with an adult during their guided reading sessions once a week within small groups. In addition to this, children will be given a school book to read at home with an adult or older sibling. Reading records are checked every Monday and children are expected to read a minimum of three times a week at home where it is recorded and signed by the adult. If children have read three times they receive one merit point, if they have read five times they will receive more.
We will be swimming on a Thursday morning.
