The following homework will be given each week:
A Numeracy game to be played at least twice; Literacy, Topic or Science and reading. Spelling homework will also be given weekly, please encourage your children to read regularly and to play word games as this is beneficial to so many areas of the curriculum.

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.

Yours sincerely,

Miss S Laws
