Please visit and encourage your child to play the games. The games work on laptops and ipads. 

Homework will consist of weekly spellings, multiplication facts and reading. Any additional work that is sent home will be tailored to the individual needs of your child.

PE kits need to be in school everyday and we will send it home when it needs washing. Children will have PE on a Tuesday and Thursday. This term we will focus on gymnastics and archery. 

We always encourage the children drink plenty of water throughout the day, please can you make sure your child has a named water bottle in school. 

Children are able to change their reading book everyday within school time. 

Each term, the children will be given a date to show and share a piece of home learning.  More details will be given on this in the new school year.

Reading in unusual places activity 

To inspire enjoyment for reading, we are encouraging children to send in a photograph of them reading in unusual places.  This will then be displayed in our reading area within the classroom and a competition will be held to see which is the first class to have a photograph from each child.   Please send your photographs to clare.thompson@dunholme.lincs.sch.uk

We look forward to seeing them.
