From the beginning of the spring term (4th January) homework and spellings will be set on a Thursday. Children will bring their homework diary home on a Thursday which will have homework and spellings to complete. Homework and spellings will be on our class webpage under the relevant tabs. Reading for Thursday - Sunday will be recorded in this homework diary also. Children will return their homework diary on a Monday morning. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights reading will be recorded in their reading record. The cycle of homework, spellings and reading will then begin again on a Thursday.
Children can swap reading books on a Monday and a Thursday. Their original book MUST be brought back and returned to school. If books are lost or damaged please send replacements of the same book to school and notify me via email@example.com
