Homework


Homework will be sent out on a Monday. Please practice the spellings each night with your child. Occasionally we will send out maths and topic related homework where necessary. Make sure you read with your child every night – 10 mins is plenty!

P.E kits will be needed in school all week. if you wish to take them on a Friday to wash them feel free to do so.

Reading


Reading will play an important part during the year so please support us by listening to your child read at home. Little and often works best; ten minutes a night is ideal Please write in your child’ reading record book, to help him/her to achieve our Moorhill Reading Challenge – the first step is to read twenty five books.
