Homework will be sent out on Friday to be returned to school each Wednesday for marking.  The ‘menu’ type homework allows children to choose which homework they would like to do each week based on what subjects interests them the most.  Please date the menu to show which homework has been completed each week.

Reading 

Reading Records are to be in school every day whether your child has read or not, this is so we can record any comments that we may have during Guided Reading sessions. Reading books may be changed daily if the Reading Records have been signed by an adult to show a book has been read. All Reading Records are checked on Monday, Wednesday and Friday to ensure that children are reading regularly at home.  Online books can also be accessed on ‘Bug Club’ through the Active Learn website.
