Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school at all times and that it is clearly named. This should include a avy tracksuit for use in colder weather.
Each piece of work should take no longer than half an hour and your child should be able to complete this independently. If children regularly have difficulty with homework, please let me know.
I hope this will give you further insight into your child’s education.
