Please see below your child’s homework grid for Terms 3 and 4. Your child’s homework book will be checked every Tuesday. As before, if you child earns 100 points or more they will receive a homework certificate and a reward. Please tick and date the activity once it has been completed and any work/photos/comments can be included in this homework book. The final completion date is Tuesday 21st March.

For Maths, the expectation is that your child continues to progress using Mathletics. Tasks will be set by the teacher that you must complete when you log in. If there are any problems with using this, please let the class teacher know. Please continue to learn your timetables, your child will be tested every Thursday.

Spellings are put into your child’s spelling folder every Monday to be tested every Friday. We will do another 50 words spelling test at the end of term 3. Thank you for your support.
