Reminders for the year:

They should also be practicing their times tables (3, 4, 6 and 8 Yr 3 and all the times tables for Yr 4) and termly spellings.
Spelling challenges are optional but children can earn spelling badges when they have achieved them.
Topic homework is set once a term and is an optional homework.
PE for Autumn Term is on a Monday and Wednesday.
PE Kits should include a white t-shirt, black shorts or jogging bottoms and black daps or trainers, you may want to include a jumper for the great British weather.
Please try to support us by completing all of your child's home learning with them to support their love for learning. Reading, spellings and mathletics are an essential element of a child's development and has a positive impact on your child's progress in all areas of the curriculum!
