For the spring term, children will need to bring their swimming kit into school every Wednesday. They will then have their normal PE lesson in school each Thursday and will need their typical school PE kit for this.
Spelling tests take place every Friday and new spellings will also be given on Fridays. These will be in your child's spelling diaries for that week. Scores from spelling tests will be shared with the children on Mondays; this way we can go over any corrections or misconceptions together in class before moving on. We take part in daily spelling activities in class and encourage the children to practice their spellings on Spelling Shed at home when possible.
Homework diaries will be checked as regularly as possible for notes, reading records etc... However, if you have an urgent note for us, please let your child know they need to show me their homework diary or catch me on the playground.
Reading books will be changed as and when needed. We encourage the children to do this at the start of the day when they have finished what they are reading. As they are now reading much longer texts, they may want/need to keep their books for longer than one week.
