What can you do to Help?

  • Encourage the children to become more independent.
  • Please label all items of clothing and book bags.
  • Make sure that you check that the children have taken their homework and that they return it.
  • Involve your child in real world maths by talking about how much something costs or how many you have. The children will benefit from it in class.
  • Please provide your child with a water bottle.
  • Please ensure the children start the day with a healthy breakfast.


Homework will consist of literacy, numeracy and spelling. It will be sent out on Friday and collected on Wednesday. Your child will also be sent home a reading book each week. Do encourage the children to read the book more than once. As they are beginning readers they may need to read the same book more than once to understand what the text is about. Do ask them about what they are reading, as it will help them in their reading comprehension.
  • English – Narrative, Non-fiction and poetry
  • Maths – Counting, addition and subtraction, positions and shapes and patterns
  • Science – Identifying Materials
  • Computing – E Safety
  • Geography – Hot and cold places
