Key Information 

Reading 

Children are expected to read regularly at home and to complete an AR book quiz each week. We have time dedicated for children to read their selected reading book but we encourage as much as possible to also listen to them read at home. 

 

Our class novel that we are reading and using for some of our guided reading sessions is:

Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll

 

As part of our English lessons this half term we will be using:

 

The Egyptian Cinderella by Shirley Climo

 

 

Next half term we will be using:

 

Homework

Spelling  

Each week children will be required to practise a set list of spellings. Spelling tests are taken on a Thursday. Their test scores will be recorded at the bottom of the relevant pages in their spelling booklet. Children will also record which words they still need to learn from the spelling test 

 

Maths 

Each week we complete a CLIC quiz in school. Part of the maths homework is to look at which questions they did not get right in that week's CLIC quiz and to spend a little time practising at home ready for the next CLIC quiz. 

 

Creative Curriculum 

Children are given a set amount of tasks to complete in their project book to further their learning about that particular theme. If they then complete these tasks they will have the opportunity to select one area to complete a small project on. This can be anything from the topic that has captured their interest and be presented in any way they choose! 

 

PE 

Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. 

Please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school on these days.

This should include:

School PE top

Black PE shorts 

Black pumps 

 

Long hair should be tied up on PE days and if your child wears earrings they must remove them before the lesson as they are getting changed or cover them with a suitable tape or plasters bought from home.
