Your child will be given maths, reading and grammar homework every Friday. This homework is found in their CGP books and is a consolidation of what has been taught during the week. The homework is due in on a Tuesday morning.
All the children have a school reading book to take home. Please try to read with your child regularly even if your child is a fluent reader and support him/her by asking questions to deepen their understanding of the texts.
There will be spellings to learn each week and tested on Fridays. The words to learn will be sent out at the start of term. These spellings will usually focus on spelling patterns and rules.
Each week on a Friday, we will test your child's arithmetic knowledge and hand out some homework. The homework will be related to the area of study they have just completed - the homework helps your child to practise the concepts and solidify their understanding. Please also practise your child's timetables and their corresponding division facts on a daily basis- a secure knowledge of these helps their skills is many other areas of maths curriculum.
Our PE lessons are on a Wednesday. Please ensure your child has their PE kit (white t-shirt, black shorts/ joggers and black jumper) in on the first day of each term, this will then be kept in school for the duration of the term.
We all look forward to working with you and seeing your child flourish!
