Other Key Information
- Reading – I encourage as much reading as possible; reading of fiction and non-fiction, as well as poetry with your child will inspire them and broaden their knowledge. If possible, please set aside as much time as you can for your child to read independently or with a family member each night. Please note – a comment with a page number and signature should be made every time a child reads at home.
- Homework – Homework is given out in homework books on Friday’s and should be returned by the following Wednesday. Please encourage and help your child complete their homework and leave a comment and/or signature. It should never be too challenging for them and it will be based on the learning from the week and some creative elements. At this age they will probably need a helping hand but by the end of year I would hope for most children to be able to tackle this on their own. I am a firm believer that the homework is the child's responsibility - as much as they enjoy telling me that you forgot to put it in their bags :)!
- P.E – Children should have an appropriate P.E. kit, including socks and trainers in school on a Monday and Tuesday afternoon. It is recommended that children bring their P.E. kits on a Monday and take them home on a Friday to avoid any disappointment due to timetable changes.
