Literacy and Maths
Pupils will also receive a literacy and a maths task to complete every week in their Mental Arithmetic and English Skills books.  Only one test should be completed in these books per week and the details of which one can be seen on the homework sheet.  These will be marked together in class on Thursday and given back out on a Friday.  Tasks will also be set weekly on MyMaths.

Multiplication and division
Children will be given a set of multiplication or division facts to learn every week.  These will be tested in class most mornings throughout the week.

St Francis will be holding a topic homework fayre on Friday 19th October after school. This
will be an open event for your children to lead you around the hall to celebrate all the
wonderful projects that children have carried out with their parents at home. You can go as
small or big as you like, with tasks ranging from fact files/posters to 3D models. Pupils will
need your support with this project and the more involved you are, the more they will learn
from the experience.

Children may (but do not have to) bring a pencil case into school for use in some afternoon subjects. This must be small and may only contain certain items.

Please make sure all of your child’s belongings are clearly named.

Classroom Location
St Mark is located at the end of the school on the Junior playground.  It is a purpose built classroom with toilet facilities and is only 3 years old.  It has direct access to the playground and field.
