A few reminders:



For Years 5 and 6 , Home Learning will be put on class pages on a Friday and spellings will need to be learned by the following Friday. Home Learning will include weekly spellings, reading and a termly project challenge.


Remember reading remains very important for everyone; please read 5 times a week (as agreed in the Home School Agreement) and ask your parents to initial your Contact Book to show you have read. We always love to see how much you have read. J





There is no homework set for Year 6 or Year 5 over half term. 


Spellings will be tested on the first Friday back to school (23rd February).


Have a lovely half term Maple Class.


Additional Home Learning:


If you would like to do some additional learning at home, there are some great websites for research and revision. Hit the Button is a great way to practise your tables and BBC KS2 Bitesize has lots of opportunities to practise a wide variety of English, Maths and Science topics. Or perhaps you could make a PowerPoint or poster about something you have learnt. I would love to see it!



Open up your spellings groups' spellings below for this week's spellings.
