Children can change their books everyday in Admirals, if necessary, using our school library. They can borrow up to two books at a time. At this age it is important for children to read regularly and to share an enjoyment for reading. Please record any reading that the children have done at home so they can earn extra house points for their efforts. Children also have a number card which they are tested on which supports their learning in maths at school.
Additionally, Year 1's have spelling homework every Friday. They need to practise these spellings at home. The children will not be tested formally on these spellings but every time they spell one of the words right they get a star on their chart. When they collect four stars they receive a house point.
Year 2's will have homework every Friday. Each week it will alternate between English and Maths. This is to prepare them for the transition into Swallowtails in September. The homework are short pieces and the children can bring it in by the following Wednesday.
If you have any questions please feel free to come and ask.
