It is extremely important that children complete the homework task that has been set each week. The task has been selected to support the learning that is taking place within the classroom.
Class 4 homework will be set every Thursday and should be complete and handed back in on the following Tuesday.
Children will receive a piece of English homework each week - this will normally be in their homework books but could occasionally be online e.g. Education City.
Children will also receive online maths homework at least every 2 weeks - this will normally be on MyMaths but can sometimes be given for other websites such as Education City or Hit the Button.
It is expected that children should be reading their reading books at home each night and bringing them in to school each day. They also have their own log in details for 'Oxford Owl Reading Buddies' that allows them to have access to 100s of books at their level that is supported by a 'reading buddy' to help and support them along the way.
This term we are aiming to develop our skills in Gymnastics by focusing on landscapes and cityscapes as our inspiration.
Our PE sessions are on a Wednesday afternoon. Please ensure your child has their full PE kit on this day and that earrings are removed or covered.
