Our Golden Reward Children So Far Are ....




Our class novels will be a range of both fiction/non fiction books relating to our topic.


Spellings will go out on a Monday ready for a test on the Friday.

Homework will be given out the first week of every half term. You can complete the activities in any order and the children have until the end of the half term to complete all activities

Reading Books

Due to COVID 19 guidance we have to allow the books 72 hours to quarantine before giving new books out. Please only return your child’s book bag on a Friday! 

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal. 

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.
