Reading and Homework
Each week your child has a reading day where they read with the teacher and are given a new book.
Children are expected to do 10 minutes Champion Reading every day - they can choose a book from their class library and change this whenever they like.
Homework goes out on Friday, to be handed in on Wednesday.

In the Spring Term we learn about information texts and we continue our rainbow sentence work through studying a range of non-fiction texts.
Throughout the Summer Term we look at different stories by the author Anthony Browne.

Children are taught to be able to apply these skills and understandings to a range of problem solving situations.
