These can be changed as often as needed. Please record in their reading record when they read. There are questions and sentence starters for you to use with your child when reading below. 


Homework tasks

Every half term the children will bring home a list of suggested homework tasks they can complete linked to our topic. They can do these at their leisure and return them to school as and when they complete them. We recommend that the children try to complete at least 3
