We are having a big push on reading this year at Priory. The children have been sent home with a reading book and blue reading journal. We would appreciate it if your child was sent in everyday with their reading record and reading book. Please could you just make a quick note in the reading journal every time you read with your child. The more regularly this happens the quicker your child will progress with their reading.

Homework will be collected on Monday every week and set on a Tuesday afternoon. We ask you to make every effort to give your child the opportunity to complete it.

PE will be on Mondays and Thursdays this year, please ensure your child is sent in with full PE kit.

Things you can do at home to help your child

· Read regularly with your child, asking questions about what they have read.

· Practice the times tables (2 ,3, 4 ,5 and 10s) with your child, greater fluency will significantly improve your child’s Maths.

· Encourage your child to practice their writing whenever possible.

If you have any queries please don’t hesitate to contact me.
