English Homework:


Each week, you are expected to read 5 times at home. There is a space in you Learning Journal where you record what you have read, ready for it to be signed by adult at home. Every Monday,  your TA will check your Learning Journal and keep a record of how many times you have read. 



Spelling lists will be handed out to each group, and tested on the day allocated by the class teacher. Practising little and often is the best way to learn your spellings. Work towards achieving 10 out of 10 every week.
