Homework

 

Your child will bring homework back every week and is expected to do it over the weekend. To support children’s progress in reading, children will be bringing an additional reading book home matched to their ability levels. Please take a few minutes each day to listen to your child read. Please find attached some strategies that we use in school that you can use to support your child.
