My favourite subject is PE, I love being active and enjoy going to the gym.
I love to read and try to read at least one book a month. My favourite author as a child was Jacqueline Wilson and read most of her books, with my favourite being 'The Bed and Breakfast Star'. I have also read all of the Harry Potter books multiple times both as an adult and a child.
I love to travel, I love to see different cultures, foods and ways of life. My favourite place I have visited is Nashville!

Important things to remember.
Homework is set on Purple Mash each week. Your child will have an English and maths 2do. This will go live on a Friday and you have until Wednesday to complete it. Please speak to a member of staff if you are struggling to access Purple Mash.
Spelling records are sent home on a Friday but are also set as a quiz on Purple Mash. Children can always access their spellings via Purple Mash. Children must hand their spelling record book in by Thursday of each week as we have a spelling test every Friday.
It is very important for your child to build up confidence and fluency in reading. Please read with your child and log this in their reading record book. Your child can read as many times as they’d like at home but they will only move up the reading read once. We will check each week and move children along the reading race if they have read at home.
PE is on a Friday afternoon. We do ask children to have their PE kits in school by Wednesday.
