Here is some key information:
Homework: will continue to be set on a Tuesday and will be due in by the following Monday. Topic project homework will be sent home at the beginning of each half term.
Spellings: Spellings will be given out in a termly booklet - there is a spelling activity to complete each week and spellings will need to be practised ready for the class test every Friday.
Reading: Reading should be done every day and recorded in home-school diaries - these will be checked and signed on a Friday morning in preparation for the 'Reader of the week' award to be given out in celebration assembly.
