We have had lots of fun learning Roman Numerals in our Maths lessons. Here is a song we have been learning in class, your children can sing along at home!

 

Homework

Our homework is set weekly on Friday. There will be three pieces per week (Spellings, Maths and English or Topic) Homework is to be returned to school on the following Thursday.

A homework club will run on Thursday lunchtime for children who have not completed their homework, or those who need a little help.

Aside from this, we are encouraging the children to read daily, even if just for 5/10 minutes as it can really help children progress in their reading.
