PE DAYS: THURSDAY & FRIDAY
Please note that children need to come into school in their PE kit on a day when they have PE.
Homework is an important part of a child's learning. It helps to consolidate what is being taught and promotes independence and organisation. We appreciate your support in ensuring your child's homework tasks are completed.
Reading: Three times a week.
Spelling: Common exception words to be practiced throughout the week. Children will be tested every half term.
Maths: Regular practise counting in 2s, 5s and 10s.
In addition to the daily maths lessons, children also complete a daily maths blast. KIRFS (key instant recall facts) such as multiplication tables and addition facts are learnt to automaticity to avoid cognitive overload in the working memory and enable pupils to focus on new concepts. The KIRFS documents provide an overview of each focus, and contain ideas about how parents can support their children with this at home.
