No other homework since getting back to normal will be tough enough.
There will be no homework over this week or the Christmas holidays as I believe that children need a rest. This does not mean that they cannot read, merely that it is not a requirement from me.
I know these spellings look easy but the majority of children are spelling them incorrectly in their independent work so they need learning more robustly.

Log in to Bug Club as soon as passwords and user names come home.
Just to let you know, Bug Club reading website is now available for your child to read from. I have allocated them one book to read by half term.
To log in please go to:
Your child's user name is the first 4 letters of his or her first name (or 3 if there are only 3 letters in the first name) then the first 4 letters of the second name with no spaces and no capitals. Everyone has the same password. It is "class5" no capitals or spaces.
