Summer 1 Term Reading Challenge

During this half-term, we will continue our reading challenge.  All you need to do is sign your child's home reading record so we know when your child has been reading. After completing a book, Mrs Wale will initial your child's independent reading chart. Please support your child as much as you can. I want the challenge to be exciting and one that encourages them to read even more.

Summer Spellings

An overview of Summer's spellings has been sent home (you can look at them by pressing on the link below too). Your child will come home each Friday with their test sheet and result.

MATHS

KIRF'S (KEY INSTANT RECALL FACTS)

 

KIRF’s are designed to support the development of the mental skills that underpin much of the maths work we complete in school. They are particularly useful when calculating, be it adding, subtracting, multiplying or dividing.
