I are very happy with the way most children are completing their homework, next
steps and reading. We are glad to see
that children are reading for longer each night and completing their reading
assignments when given. Please continue
to encourage your child to read for a purpose, as well as reading their school
book. Maths Targets/Next
We will continue
with the times and division tables and other key facts. The emphasis is on
immediate recall, so as before children will at times revisit lower tables to
check they still have instant recall. Please don’t worry or be upset. The table
needs to be written out each night and brought into school each day
We will continue to go to the library every 2 weeks on a Wednesday
afternoon. Our first visit this term will be on 13th January 2016.
as I said before, do not hesitate to come and see me if you have any concerns.
look forward to working with you again this term.
With best wishes
