We have PE on Tuesdays with Premier Sports and Thursdays. This term we are focusing on striking and fielding games. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school on these days. As the weather gets nicer, we will be using outside as much as possible.
Spellings will come home each week on a Monday and then will be tested the following Monday.
Number facts tests will be on a Monday in maths groups.
Reading books can be changed on Mondays and Thursdays.
Remember to keep up the reading! Record each time that you read with your child in their reading record. Those children that read 5 times in the week will be rewarded with a stamp in their book and a sticker on the 5 Star Reader chart. Each half-term we will celebrate those children who have consistently been 5 Star Readers!
