Cycle 1

Welcome back to a new year at Brentnall; I hope that everyone has had a lovely break. I would like to welcome your child to Jade Class.

This year your teacher will be Miss Holmes. Also working in Emerald will be Miss Ahmed.

Homework

This year homework will be sent out on a Friday and should be returnedto school on a Wednesday. Each week will include a piece of Maths and a set of spellings that will be tested on a Friday.

Diary

Every child in KS2 has been provided with a school diary, this should be taken home every night along with a reading book that has been chosen by your child. The diary is to be signed and returned the next day to show your child has read at home (15-20 minutes).
