We have an exciting term ahead of us so make sure to keep an eye on the website for more information.
Important dates for Term 4
Friday 15th March - Red Nose Day
Homework will be sent home this term to be completed and returned the following week. We ask that the children are encouraged to complete this to a high standard. We would also like the children to continue to focus on learning their times tables and related division facts. If you need an updated times table rock star login, please let us know.
Children will be taught a spelling rule during the week and it will be their task to learn that rule for their homework. On Fridays we will then test the children on that spelling rule. Spelling books will not come home.
We will be encouraging children to read four times a week at home. Please ensure you record this in your child's reading record. We will check the reading records every Friday to see which children have read four times, these children will then receive a raffle ticket with a chance to win a prize at the end of the term. The class which have the highest number of children reading four times will receive a trophy during our assembly.
Parents and carers - please come and see us, we will be in the playground every morning and afternoon and value the importance of effective home school communication. If you have any queries or questions come and ask us or send us an email!
