Long-sleeved sports' top
As the weather gets colder, please ensure your child has sufficient warm layers for games lessons.
If your child has long hair, please make sure they tie it back for PE lessons.
Children should not wear earrings for PE.
If, for any reason your child cannot do PE, please send in a note to their class teacher.
The children will be having Maths homework EVERY FRIDAY.
Some weeks, homework may be on their Abacus website accounts or written. Sometimes there will be both written and online homework.
Please return homework by MONDAY .
Please take every oppportunity to practise times tables!
Spelling is every WEDNESDAY. Children write their words in their big yellow book to learn at home, then return it by the following WEDNESDAY. The tests are recorded in their school English books.
There are activities at the back of their homework books to do with their words at home. Sometimes the teacher will give them an activity, sometimes the children choose their own.
For the next few weeks, the children will be using commonly used words. After that, they will be working on different and more difficult spelling patterns.
We are focusing on improving handwriting. The children are being encouraged to practise their handwriting by using their spelling words. The following link shows how the letters are formed:
