Homework and reading books

Please make sure your child brings their book bag to school everyday with their reading books and reading record inside it. Please use the reading record to make comments and sign.

A spelling book with a list of spellings will be sent home each week for your child to learn. A maths homework sheet will be sent home every week for your child to complete. Please ensure these books are in your child’s book bag on a Wednesday.

It is important that you support your child with each piece of homework and establish routines of daily reading, and other routines with spellings and multiplications etc. Short sessions are much more productive that long ones where concentration is sometimes lost.


Cursive Handwriting

This year we will start using cursive writing, please help your child to write in this way at home and to remember to use capital letters, finger spaces, full stops and to sit their letters on the line.


 Thank you for your continued support.
