Please can you also ensure that your child is reading regularly. You can read the books we provided, home reading books, make use of Reading Buddy and access the comics and online texts from the page linked below.
These are the OPTIONAL tasks that you might like to choose to extend, support and embed your child's learning.

These activities can count towards to the three hour learning expectation, as can outdoor play, jigsaws, puzzles, craft, drawing, games, singing, cooking and so much more.
