Expect the Best


Duckling Class

Reading: You child will soon receive a Reading Journal and a reading book from the school. These need to come into school everyday with your child. The school do have book bags available to purchase if needed. Please read with your child each night and write a comment into the journal afterwards. You should read with your child a minimum of three times a week.

Once three comments have been recorded into the Reading Journal, your child will receive a new reading book. We would like the book to be re-read at least three times, as this will build up your child’s reading fluency. Your comments do not have to be long, something as simple as the title of the book and “They read the whole book to me”, is perfect.  If you would like to add more detail, please do so.


Homework: Your child will receive a piece of maths and English based homework most weeks. This will be given out on the Friday and should be sent back into school by Thursday the following week. The activities given will always reflect what we have been learning about at school.
