Weekly Spellings

Our Home Learning choices. These are to be brought in, or emailed ready for a Monday afternoon:
Maths Passports:
The passports should be first dated by your child when they think they have achieved the goal, then by yourselves when you think they have achieved the goal and that is when we will check them in school and move them on. Try to complete at least one goal per week.
We have given out the passports now.  Please make sure the passport has been signed by your child and yourself before being handed in for checking.  If the passport is not waiting for checking then it needs to stay inside the reading record book at all times.
We have P.E sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday, please make sure your kit is in.
We change our reading books on a Monday and Thursday.  If you have finished your book before these times, find something to read at home and write it in your reading record.
