Reading Related Activities Book:
This book will be sent home after the first few weeks.  From then on it stays at home and we ask children to try to complete one activity per week.
It is due in on these dates (which are Fridays) so that we can check and share what has been done the following Monday: 

 

Maths Passports:
Next to each skill, there are three columns to date (MM/YY). The first box is for the pupil to date when they think they have achieved the skill. The second box is for an adult at home to date when they have seen the child achieve this skill. The third box is for the teacher to use when they have verified that the skill has been achieved.



Below is a link to a Maths Passports Guide that we use in all year groups to ensure that Passport Skills are assessed consistently across the school. This resource should help you to assess each of the skills as they would be in the classroom. Where there is reference made to an ‘attached task’, these are also included here to help you.
