I would very much appreciate your support with any homework that is set. Homework will currently be set on a Friday and it will consist of online learning using apps such as TT rockstars and Sumdog. Please email me if your child does not have their logins for the above websites.

Your child will complete weekly spelling tests. They can practise these spellings using Spelling Frame as I will be adding spelling lists so that they match those practised in class. These will be set every Wednesday along with homework. Their test will be the following Wednesday.

Please read with your child as much as possible and ask them questions about the text. We are not using reading records at the moment due to the current rules.

Every Wednesday your child will participate in an outdoor learning/PE day which will require them to wear outdoor clothing and outdoor footwear. This will be starting on Wednesday 9th September 2020.

Please contact me via email (jgray@harworth.snmat.org.uk) if you have any queries or questions surrounding your child's learning This email will not be monitored during the day due to teaching therefore in case of emergency, please contact school directly.

Thanks for your support,

Mr Gray
