General information:

Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected to be returned to school on a Wednesday. Children will also be given a spelling rule at the beginning of each week which we will partially review in school, but these also need to be practised at home -  as we will do a weekly test on a Friday. 

Reading will continue in school with a focus on comprehension. Children should continue to read at home choosing a variety of different text types. They will be allowed to take books home from our class Library, please help ensure these books are returned to school.  

TT Rockstars continues to be a great way to get children to engage and excell at their times tables, please encourage their use of this platform at home, when possible!
