Blue 7

Home School Learning in Blue 7 
 
Home reading books will be in your child's bag each night. We ask that you try to read every evening with your child and write a small comment in the record book. This will help us to update any reading or spelling targets as well as focus on any specific areas of difficulty. On a Friday evening, pupils will be sent home a 'weekend news' worksheet to complete with their grown-ups. When pupils return to school on Monday, we talk and write about our weekend news as part of our English and communication lesson.
