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.



During the Autumn Term we focus on stories and diaries.  We learn how to write rainbow sentences so that we can make sure our writing is interesting with adjectives, connectives, openers and adverbs.

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 expected to have neat handwriting, using correct letter formation. They are also expected to learn and spell the most commonly used key words.



Each term we develop our mathematical understanding in:

  • Number Operations
  • Shape, Space & Measures
  • Handling Data
  • Word Problems
  • Multiplication & Division

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