Reading:

Your child has been allocated a digital reading log on google classroom. He/she will get the opportunity to change their reading book in school. Please listen to your child read as often as possible and record any comments in the reading record on google classroom as the children will be rewarded with 5 dojos each time they have read 5 times. We really encourage reading at home for 10 minutes daily.

 

Homework:

Homework is set every half term in the form of a ‘Homework Bingo’ grid tailored to the needs of children in Lower Key Stage Two. This will also be set through google classroom, you can upload photos and videos of the homework your child is completing. Please complete as many of the challenges during term time and ensure you return your book so we can share your hard work with the class and award lots of Dojo points.

 

Snack:

Your child will need a healthy snack to have during break time; any pots must have names on if you wish them to be kept.
