Reading Books

The children have been assessed on their reading level and the reading journal are used to record their reading and comments they wish to make about this. The library is now open and 5B have been enjoying the new facilities. Children are still encouraged to read at home. It is important that children bring a reading book to school every day.

 

PE

Our PE days are Tuesday (Outdoor) and Thursday (Indoor) so please ensure children come into school on those days correctly equipped for their PE lessons. 

Homework

The children have been allocated their homework for this half term and have been sent home with their homework books. Maths, English and Theme homework is compulsory. Then from the remaining 9 tasks they must complete a further 2, totalling 5. Children may complete all the tasks if they wish and can hand it in before the deadline. If any problems arise, please come and ask. 

 

Homework is due: Monday 10th February 2020.
