Greeting all and welcome to Term 6!

How was your half term? I spent mine in Germany visiting family and staying at Centre Parcs.

We cannot believe this is the final term! Where has the time gone? It's been a blast so far so let's hope we can end the year with a bang... just not literally!

Please check out what we will be learning this term and remember we are always here to help and support you and your child if needed!

 

Regards

Spellings 

Children will be taught spellings each week and will be discretely tested on these once a week. Children's spelling will be tailored to their individual ability and need. Please support and encourage your children to practice these at home as it is invaluable to their success with reading and writing.

 

 

 

Homework

Could I ask that the children read once daily and have their reading record signed by whomever listens to them. Could I also ask that your child practices their spellings each week. 

Additional work maybe sent home as and when it is felt they need extra practice. 

If children refuse to complete tasks at school, it may be necessary to send the work home.
