Please make sure that your child is reading every night for at least 15 minutes. If your child is a confident reader please still ask them about what they are reading, about the characters or the plot. Make sure your child reads some non-fiction too-a magazine, the football pages, an information book linked with the topic.
Recommended Reading Books
Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected in the following Thursday. If Year Six children are finding the homework difficult then they must bring it in and ask for some help with it to help increase their independence.
If your child attends a Booster group they may have extra homework-the expectation is that this will be done when it is set please. If your child has any questions about homework we encourage them to come back and ask us for help-this helps them in Year Seven to have the confidence to ask questions as they need to. I will be talking to them about this in the first few weeks.
