Reading books will be changed every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please make every effort to read with your child at home regularly and discuss the characters and story.


The children are given spellings every Monday to take home and practise them. A weekly spelling test will take place every Friday.


This term, we will have P.E. on a Tuesday and a Thursday. On Thursday the children will need trainers or pumps for Games. We do ask that children have P.E. kits in school every day in case of a change to the timetable.

Swimming lessons will be taking place in the Summer term.


Homework (English and Maths) is given out on Fridays. It is to be returned by Wednesday, at the latest. There are also spellings to learn, which will be tested the following Friday.

Useful Information

Children are able to bring water bottles into school each day. Please ensure that the bottle has a safety top on (sports bottle top) and is clearly labelled.

Dojo app

If you could please sign up to the Dojo app, it would be much appreciated.


The children have also received a times table book to take home and practise their tables each week.
