How you can help at home

Children MUST complete homework on a weekly basis, using the homework framework - choose one piece weekly and submit by Friday. Support with daily reading, practice words and show this in the reading record. 

Remember, while your child has a set reading book change day we are happy to change books as often as required, put it in your class box in the morning! Thank you very much for your continued support.

Super writing

We have written some fantastic poetry about a walk in the woods using all of our senses!
