Week 2 Term 3

Welcome back to Term 3!
I can't believe we have been back for a whole week already!
It seems everyone had a lovely holiday break, be it either overseas and up north soaking up some warmth or some lovely time at home relaxing and spending precious family time together.  All the children have come back refreshed and ready for some more learning and fun!

Homework
Homework will continue as normal this term.  Please ensure your child is reading every night including ten minutes aloud to an adult to help develop expression and fluency (home or school book).  This is also a great opportunity to discuss new vocabulary and punctuation features.
Mental maths books Days 1 to 4 completed by Fridays.  We also encourage nightly spelling of your child's phonic spelling list in their blue Look, Say, Cover, Write and Check mini-folder.  Please try to also include three or four extra tricky sight words to spell each night (these should be the sight word practice words noted on a letter if your c…
