No PE Kit… again! Considerations for setting a policy - PE Planning 
Godrevy's hall slot is every Monday. However, please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school all week. This includes shorts or jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, shoes that are suitable for indoor and outdoor activities. Please contact Mr Smith if you need any support with PE kit.
At St Uny Church of England Academy, we believe homework is anything children do outside of the normal school day that contributes to their learning, in response to guidance from the school. Homework encompasses a whole variety of activities instigated by teachers and parents/carers to support the children's learning. Please see the 'Chilli Challenge' homework grid attached to this page. The homework grid has a variety of exciting tasks and activities linked to our topic.

Reading should be enjoyed daily - please ensure that your child reads either independently or with somebody at home and that their reading is recorded in their reading record. The children are thoroughly enjoying working towards their next 'Reading Karate' bands and raffle tickets, so please keep up with the fantastic support and excitement!

Teaching Spelling in 3rd Grade: Best Ways to Make it Fun
It is important that by the end of  Year 2 ( KS1) children learn to read and spell the the National Curriculum words for Year 1 and 2. Although we practice and encourage the application of accurate spelling during the school day, it would be greatly appreciated if you could regularly monitor your child on the year 2 common exception words. Please ask children to recite words out loud as well as write the spellings out correctly. Thank you to all parents and carers for your ongoing support with spelling!
