PE Sessions

 

Monday and Friday

 

Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school. PE bags are sent home every holiday giving parents an opportunity to check that their kit still fits them. PE clothing that is too small restricts the children and is uncomfortable.

 

 

Homework

 

Friday

Children need to be practising their reading and maths skills 3-5 times a week, with an adult MINIMUM.

Reading can consist of activities such as Page 99, Tricky Work Window, Dictionary work or answer questions about a section of the text.

Maths is in line with their record of achievement in the back of the Home Record Book.
Depending on where your child is will depend on what maths skill they are developing but no matter which one it is, the activites will be similar.
Activities such as chanting, quick fire questions, mini quizzes, googling times tables games or free apps found on tablets are great examples of what they could do. There are also links to English and Maths games in the children section of the school website.Children will be tested weekly to achieve their Star Awards!

Some children will receive extra homework to boost their confidence in reading and arithmetic.
