Useful Class Information:

Our Homework is always set on a Friday and then is due in on the next Wednesday.

This should give plenty of time to ask if unsure about what is required.

Homework will always be a reinforcement of what we have been doing in class and so should never be completely alien to the children!

It should last between 20 and 30 minutes. If it is taking longer then you can stop wherever you managed to reach.

Times tables tests are on Wednesday mornings and practice tests are available (just ask). 

This term's Class Reader is "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by C.S.Lewis. If you can find your own copy in a charity shop, it will come in very handy!
