This term a World War 2 themed grid will be sent home (this may also be downloaded using the link below). 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
