In addition to the Thursday P.E. lesson, all children will complete a ‘daily mile’.  This will involve them running/walking a mile of the playground every day.

Reading Books

Children will develop their reading skills once a week with the class teacher as part of a guided reading group.  In addition to this, children are expected to read independently at home at least five times a week.  This could be a book from home or a book from the school library.  Please could you sign their Home Reading Records at least once a week, however your child should be writing in it every time they read with a small comment. Children will visit the library on a weekly basis.

How can parents help?

Please listen to your child read at least five times a week or talk to your child about what they have read.  Children can pick a reading book from school, home or the library.  Their diaries need a quick initial at least once a week.

Learning all the times table facts should also be ongoing with children becoming quicker with their mental recall. 

Please make sure homework is in on time and children have a clean and complete P.E. kit in school.
