Welcome back to Term 2. I hope that you have had a lovely half term.

PSHE: Our topic of conversation will be ‘Family and Relationships’.
PE: These lessons will be on Fridays and we will be covering Football.
Homework: Homework grids will be sent out each term. Children choose an activity from the grid each week to take on as their homework. As always, these grids are just a guide. Please be creative and encourage your child to do something that excites them! Spellings will be sent home on a Monday to learn for the following Monday. The children have been reminded of their Purple Mash logins and I will set some fun times tables tasks weekly for your child to take part in. Just a short 10 minutes a few times a week can make all the difference.
If there are any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ask.
