French – The children will continue to be taught French last lesson on Friday by Mrs Walsh.
Spellings – The children we be given an overview of their spellings for this term and it will be stuck into the homework diaries. They will be taught their new spellings for the week every Thursday morning and spelling checks Friday mornings. Children have logins to Spelling shed where they can practice their spellings both at school and home.
Reading – Children are responsible for changing their book once completed. They independently read every morning before lessons start and we expect the children to read daily at home. When your child reads at home this needs to be recorded in reading records - a mixture of reading aloud and independent is great.
Guided Reading – This will take place with Mrs Dobinson on a Monday. English homework will be handed out on a Monday to be handed in the following Monday based on our text looking at different areas of reading from VIPERS.
