PE is on Tuesday (outdoor) and Thursday (indoor). Please ensure that appropriate PE kit is in school on those days (remember to provide tape for any earrings that can't be removed). Correct outdoor footwear is essential for outdoor P.E. sessions and warm layers - we go out in all weathers!

Homework consists of reading and logging in their reading diary, spelling and times tables practice and tasks linked to our work within class. Reading will be checked every day and homework should be in the box in class by Tuesday. Homework will go out on a Thursday or Friday.

Timestables Rock Stars log-ins will be checked and updated soon.

Times Tables are on Thursday each week, please practise your times tables regularly.

Every other week, spellings will be come home on a Tuesday and be tested on the following Monday. Children will choose 6 words from our units to log in their Log Book and bring home to learn.
This will alternate with a sheet that will have up to 10 spellings which will help children to practise their high frequency words. (We call these orange or red words as they are on orange cards!)

We would welcome any parent support - please speak to us if you can help, especially listening to readers.
