Mrs W.







In this week's homework you should find a note and a couple of pages of GLOSSARY TERMS for the GPS work we are doing in school and   homework .

A number of parents have asked for this as an aid to helping their child do their homework. The children will have used the terminology in Literacy lessons at some point. I have included the year2 glossary also as we continue to use those too. The national curriculum is quite prescriptive about the terminology we should use in each year group.

 Hope the sheets help.....This should save time having to google!!

Any problems pop in to see me or drop a note in your child's reading record or homework. 

Keep up the good work...the majority of children in year 3 always complete their homework THANKS.Image result for HOMEWORK PARENTS STRESS
