Weekly Timetable

Our P.E. day is on Tuesday so please ensure that your child has full kit for this day.

Reading books can be changed every day but we recommend that books are kept long enough to be read a few times in order to build fluency and comprehension of the text.  Books must be changed at least once a week to ensure progression through the reading scheme.

Homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed by Wednesday of the following week.  Each week there will usually be one piece of English and one piece of Maths homework.  All homework is to be completed in pencil and to the standard we expect in school.

New spellings will be given on a Friday.  These will be written in their beige spelling books.  Please ensure your child brings this to school each Friday.  Spellings from the previous week will be tested on a Friday morning. 

You should aim to listen to your child read every day for at least 10 minutes.  See the Literacy page for some top tips!

 

Handy equipment to have at home: 

* Pencil,

* pencil sharpener

* 30cm ruler

* glue stick

* pencil crayons

* dictionary

* thesaurus
