HOMEWORK AUTUMN 2021:
Homework will be set on a half termly basis.
If you need additional Maths sheets that are not included on this list, please see Miss Harding.
Spellings will be tested on a Thursday morning and will be tested in the form of a dictation. This means new words will be put into full sentences to ensure children have an understanding of their meaning.
You will receive a new reading book three times a week. These days may change each week. Remember, if you finish your book you can read it again or continue reading a library book at home. If you have finished the reading scheme, please read library books and keep Miss Harding regularly updated with what you are reading.
