We are highly keen to encourage children’s reading for pleasure and enjoyment. As part of our school provision, children will have a school library book. This should come to and from school daily for the children to read and enjoy. Please share this reading with them and foster their love of reading. They will also have access to MyOn which will allow them to enjoy ebooks and audio books, and also to quiz on them via Accelerated Reader.
This half term, children will be having PE on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, so please send your child to school in their PE kits on these days.
Year 5/6 Spellings:
Alongside the regular practice of homework spelling, there a set of Year 5/6 spellings that children are expected to know by the end of the two-year phase. Please practise these words regularly with your child.
