There are no spellings set this week.



The children have all been given a new reading record and library book. Please remember to read with your child a minimum of 5 times a week and sign their reading records. Remember it is 7 times a week for those completing the reading challenge. Reading Records will be checked on a Friday. Book can be changed any day so please ask your teacher or TA.


Spring Term Optional Home Learning 

We will be studying the Vikings in the spring term. You could think about...

Who were the Vikings and when did they live?

Why did they come to Britain?

What did Viking women do?

What did they trade?

You could create a fact file, PowerPoint, booklet or poster to share what you have found out.
