It has been super to see how many of you are reading and are thoroughly enjoying the books you are currently reading, keep up the great work! Reading is a part of your weekly homework. Ideally you should be spending around ten to fifteen minutes each day reading your book. Even though you are now becoming more independent readers, you may still want to discuss your reading with an adult at home, or perhaps even try and persuade them to read to you sometimes!
We should see evidence of what you have been reading, along with a brief comment, in your reading journal, which should be in school . If you are struggling to find something to read, then talk to us and we will do our best to help. If we can see you are struggling to make time to read at home, we will take some time to discuss this with you during a break or lunchtime so we can help you to overcome this issue.
Times tables are a fundamental part of maths and if you have rapid recall of these, you will find many elements of maths much easier.
