General Things:


Once we have finished benchmarking, children will be placed in appropriate Read Write Inc.(phonics) groups.  Spelling lists for children who are ready, will be sent home on Fridays and spelling tests will be  held the following Friday.



When we feel children are ready, Homework will be sent home every Wednesday and books need to be handed  back in by Monday.



Children will read a book in school with an adult. The same book will be sent home that week.This might be a picture book to start with. Please discuss the pictures or read the story with your child daily for about 5-10 mins.



P.E is on Wednesday afternoon. Please make sure your child brings an appropriate P.E kit.
