On Monday 24th May, we will be launching a new reading challenge for this term.

Pupils will need to read to an adult at least twice over the weekend to complete the challenge on time.

Please make sure you sign your child(ren)’s reading record book so that we can keep track of who is reading at home.

Pupils will need to reach the following milestones by:

08/05 for Bronze

15/05 for Silver

22/05 for Gold

Pupils who have reached Gold on time will receive a reward, chosen by the children, during the last week of term.

Here are some photos from our coronation lunch:

Please see our Newsletter for term 5 and our key vocabulary below:

Here is a list of homework that the children should be doing weekly to avoid confusion:

2 x reading over weekend of practice book (Comes home on Friday, MUST be back on Monday)

Reading of library book as many times as you like (read for pleasure with your child) (Comes home Friday to be returned on the next Friday)

3 x games on Ed shed

Any problems, please write a note in the contact book- I am more than happy to help!
