It is essential that you read with your child at home every day for at least 20 minutes. This is invaluable time, that will make a dramatic difference to your child's learning, not just to their reading ability but across the curriculum.
Your child will be given a reading book appropriate to their reading level and a free choice book each week. There is an amazing library in Penge stocked with a fantastic range of children's books. Please do go and visit. Children will be set homework on Friday and this will need to be returned the following Friday.
The children will be learning recorder all year with our specialist music teacher. They will have their weekly session on a Thursday afternoon.
Attendance and punctuality are very important. Good attendance and punctuality allow your child to fully access the curriculum and build on their prior learning. Please ensure that your child comes to school on time and every day. If your child is late it not only disrupts their learning in the morning, but can unsettle them for the rest of the day.
