Useful information

Reading

 

Children can change their books once they have finished reading them. We ask that if a child wishes to change their book that they come into school ready to do so in the morning. Each child has a reading record book where we can share information about their reading. We love to hear about how the children are reading at home and don't forget there are prizes for the children throughout school that get the most reading comments!

Homework

 

Homework will be given out on a Friday and should be returned to school the following Thursday. We also set projects during each IPC topic so look out for letters with information regarding these. 

Here are a few amazing projects that parents and children have made this year...

Spellings

 

The homework includes a set of spellings which are based on the phonics that they children have been learning that week. Please practise these spellings at home using the look - cover -write  method. We will have a little spelling test every Friday. Children with full marks will get a prize!
