Homework will be given out on a Friday and is expected to be back in by the following Tuesday. Homework is important because it improves your memory. It also allows you to extend your learning by applying it to new situations!
For this half term P.E. will fall on a Monday (Outdoor Games) and Wednesday (Dance). Please remember to bring in your P.E. kit. As the months are getting colder please make sure you bring an extra jumper and jogging pants with you.
