General Information

Reading: Reading at home is the best kind of homework you can do – aim for 10 minutes every night if possible.


Could we please ask for your support to ensure your child has a PE kit in school throughout the half term? Thank you.


In Class 2 we expect the bulk of children’s homework time to be devoted to varied and regular reading. 10 minutes a night really does make a difference, and adds up to just over an hour a week.
