Homework this year:
- reading 5x per week
- practise times tables daily
The only homework children will take home this year is their spellings. They will be given out on a Monday and children should practise throughout the week in preparation for a test on Friday.
Times tables can be practised through a great game called 'Hit the Button' (see useful links section of our page).
Reading should be every day. They should read their school books, however they can also read other books they are enjoying as we want to encourage the children to read for pleasure. Reading records will be checked at least every other day so that children can change their books if necessary.
Hornbeam Class have PE every week. Currently, this is on a Wednesday and a Thursday, but is often likely to change and we therefore require all children to have their PE kit with them Monday to Friday.
Children must have both an indoor kit (royal blue shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls/indoor trainers) and an outdoor kit (royal blue tracksuit top, bottoms and outdoor trainers).
All hair must be tied back and earrings must either be removed or taped over.
If your child is unable to participate within a PE lesson, a letter needs to be written and handed to the teacher.
