‘Through God’s love, we are the rich soil where
roots grow and seeds flourish.’ Luke 8:4-15

Enabling children to flourish and succeed


We would like pupils to focus on reading and spellings for their homework this term. Pupils are expected to read at least 3 times per week at home, for more information on this see our class information page. Pupils should have a login for spelling shed which allows them to practise this weeks spellings. I have also added a range of tasks to pupils favourites on Busy Things which link to this terms learning.
