- PE Kit
Chinchillas will need to ensure that their PE kits are in school on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure that items of clothing are clearly labelled.
Homework activities will be set on Mondays and Thursdays. As well as a written activity we also encourage children to read daily as well as to learn their multiplication tables and associated division facts. Spellings are set every Monday and children will have the week to learn words ready to be tested a week later.
Homework and spellings can be found here.
Children have access to the library and an accelerated reader book which needs to be into school every day to use in allocated reading time. Reading journals have also been issued so children can record the books they are reading as well as offering space for comments to be made when reading occurs at home. These too should be in school each day.
We encourage all children to read as much as possible and encourage them to achieve 100% in the quizzes completed based upon the books read.
