HOMEWORK will be given out on Fridays and should be returned the following week.  There will be a list of spellings to learn and some arithmetic.

READING - please listen to your child read for 10 minutes each day.  Record any comments in the reading diary which will be checked by the teacher weekly.  Please bring reading books and diaries every day.   Children can complete the activities in their reading record if they wish.  They should be encouraged to think about their book, for example: if they like the characters in the story, give reasons for their choice; consider if the character names make them sound friendly or a little unpleasant; describe the character in three words.
