overview of what we will be learning about in Spring Term.

We ask that you continue to regularly read to your child and
listen to them read to you every night.
There is no requirement for children to read an entire book in one night
but we ask that you record in the Home/School book the number of pages they do
read. Keep practising together your child’s next steps in Mathematics. Children should also begin to learn their 2, 5,
10, 3, 4 and 8 multiplication and division tables.
If at any time you have any concerns about your child please
see either Jodie or Melissa after school to make an appointment.
Thank you for your continuing support.
Jodie, Melissa, Sandra, Lorren and Zunaira
