On going














The book and reading record book should be in your child’s school bag every day.



Monday is ideal, although we do appreciate that this is not always possible. However please ensure that Maths homework is returned by Wednesday at the latest so that we can mark it.




How can parents help?

We try to encourage the children to be as independent as possible, especially as they will be entering Key Stage 2 soon. Encourage your child to be responsible for completing their homework, packing their school bag e.t.c. Encourage independence in lots of more general ways too.
