Reading is the key that unlocks many doors...I expect the children to read regularly and make a note of their books, and thoughts about them in their reading diaries. Books will be sent home on a THURSDAY and need to be returned to school the following MONDAY.
I will set English, Maths and Spelling homework every THURSDAY on Google Classroom. The English and Maths homework will need to be uploaded by TUESDAY EVENING, of the following week. I will test spellings every THURSDAY. If you are having any difficulties with Google Classroom please let me know I and I will do my best to help.
