All the above needs to be handed in on the following Monday. Please let me know how your child is progressing with their home learning.
Daily reading every night (if possible) 10-15 minutes a day. Please sign your child's reading record each day to show you have heard them read.
To develop a lifelong love of learning and valuable life skills, we aim to support every child to develop a positive learning and life approach. As part of this, you will increasingly become aware of the characteristics of PRIME.
Nelson (our school mascot) accompanies and illustrates each strand of this.
I attach a 'poster' to identify each of the characteristics of PRIME which we will be aiming to develop in every child during their time at Ruishton school. Please see below.
