The idea is that every week your child reads at least 4 times (for approximately 10 minutes) to you or another adult.  

They will do some work on learning times tables including using Times Tables Rock Stars.

There will also be a termly menu.  From this you can select any item that you wish to do each week.  That way it can fit around other things that you do out of school.  Do them to the best of your ability; there will be gold cards on offer!

Please will you bring this in on Mondays.

Spellings will be run differently this year; we're not setting weekly spellings or testing them.  I know this sounds controversial but we will be spending time on them every day in class.  I will post this week's patterns at the bottom of the page just for your information.
