Please can you encourage children to read for at least 20 minutes per day at home. Once they have read please can you then ensure that this is recorded in their Reading Record books by either an adult or the children. If an adult can then confirm by writing 'Home' in the comments section (and add a comment if you wish) so that the children can earn an extra break time reward on Friday afternoon.
This year each class will be taking part in a 'spelling Bee'. This consists of 42 words that are tested at the start of the term and then again at the end of the term. Children will be given 7 spellings per week to learn for their Friday spelling test. Children who score 42 at the end of the term will receive a special award during 'Star of the Week'.
