Please continue practising the following skills for fluency:


- Listening to your child reading three times a week and writing in their reading record.

- Times tables up to the 12 times tables (not in rote order).

- Discussing the meaning and spellings of unfamiliar words. Please support your child to access and understand their home learning – these are skills they have learnt in class and should be able to work through mostly independently


Thank you for making sure that your child has their PE kit in school for their Wednesday PE (outdoor) sessions every week.


Please remember, swimming lessons are every Tuesday afternoon from the first day back. Please see the letter sent home Tuesday 2nd April for details.
