The theme for autumn is 'South America' - take a look below to see some of the exciting things you will be learning about!
Please check Seesaw for information about your weekly homework activities. 
English/Maths/ Spelling Homework will be set on a FRIDAY and should be handed in the following FRIDAY.
Reading journals and reading books should be brought into school EVERYDAY.
At home, you should be reading AT LEAST 5 times per week. You will have your own individual reading book and should make sure you log all your reading in your reading journal.
We will also be encouraging you to read a wide range of genres this year too - why not choose something to read that is different to the books you would usually go for? Visit our Reading for Pleasure section for more ideas!

At least two Reading Comprehension sessions should be completed at HOME each week, with the other two and your Visual Skills/Vocabulary tasks being completed in school.
