Others who will be helping in our class are:
Do ask if you have any questions.
Books can be changed on Monday and Thursday. Adults need to sign Reading Record Books to check understanding and that reading comprehension/activities have been completed.
We will read EVERYDAY in class. Some children will receive extra individual reading sessions.

You will get new spellings and homework to help you learn these spellings and rules. Work needs to be neat and well presented in blue ink (not biro). This is to be handed in the following MONDAY.
On FRIDAY a homework involving Maths, English or topic will be set. It will involve something covered in school so that you can explain it to your parents.
Homework needs to be handed in on THURSDAY.
