We have lots of very exciting learning ahead of us... watch this space for our latest news!
Homework Expectations-Please see the front of Learning Logs
Every week the Learning Log homework will be stuck into your child's Learning Log. On there will be Maths, English and Topic work, We also ask that you practise spellings with your children from their Read Write Inc. spelling log books, which should go home every night and then come back to school the following morning.
Topic homework will be shared with the class. Completed homework will be shared with the class or marked in the way highlighted on the learning log page. We will go through the maths and English homework during the maths and English lesson on the due date and any questions can be asked then. It is really important that the homework is completed and in class on the due date to ensure we can go through it with the work in front of the children so that we can help with any questions.
Please make sure all work goes into the Learning Log and is stuck down. If your child has made a large piece, such as a model, that won't stick into the Learning Log, please leave a space and we will put a photo of the work there instead.
