Home learning
Each week children will have spelling; the spellings will be handed out on Tuesday and set on Spelling Frame.   TTRS and reading, as well as some IXL activities to complete. Any extra support you can provide for your children is much appreciated.
Please could you help your child learn their times tables.
For example, singing times tables songs, quickfire times tables questions or fun times tables games. 
Thank you for your continued support. 
On days that we have PE, children should wear their PE kit coming into school and stay in it all day. Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. PE kit is a plain white t-shirt, navy shorts and/or navy tracksuit bottoms/ jogging pants with either plimsolls or trainers. The children should wear their school jumper as normal. 
The children have completed their 'Star Reading Assessment' and now have reading books matched to their individual comprehension level. 
Please encourage your child to read everyday  and those on Accelerated Reader to quiz as we will be tracking their reading success.
We will learn about Baptism and understanding words sacrament, confirmation, gifts of the Holt Spirit and living in the light of Christ. Following this we will learn more about the season of Advent. We will learn about preparations for the coming of Our Lord and the symbols used. We will think about how these affect us today and what we can learn.
