The focus for Home Learning this term is reading. We would like all children to be finding and reading books they love and sharing these stories within school, therefore we have suspended usual home learning for the time being. 

We are asking all children to read for pleasure at least 4 times a week and make good use of their Timestables Rockstars and Read Theory accounts.
