PE- Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that children have a school PE kit and that jewellery is removed on these days.
Reading – All children have a reading book and a reading diary. Please remember to write in your child's reading diary when you have heard them read. Children are praised for reading at home by moving along our reading track - prizes include book marks, pencils and wrist bands. Children who reach 50 on the reading track are also entered into a termly prize draw.
Phonics- Letter and Sounds sessions take place daily and children are carefully grouped into the phase of phonics they are working at. These sessions concentrate on learning letters, sounds and the spelling and reading of high frequency words. Children also take part in a daily Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling session, and this is now a formally assessed area of the curriculum.
Homework – All children have a homework book. Homework will be set on a Friday and is to be completed by the following Wednesday. Children will also be given spellings to learn at home and also some handwriting practise.
