This term we will be continuing the Victorians homework choice grid for two weeks. After this, a Christmas themed grid will be sent home, one piece of homework from the grid must be completed each week. Maths homework and spellings focused on a specific pattern or rule will also be sent home each week along with a ‘spelling menu’ containing activity choices.

Reading and simply enjoying books at home with your child will also further their development as will helping them learn their times tables.

I hope this will give you a further insight into your child’s education. If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Yours sincerely,

Mr Brinkley
