Take home task:


Hand in date: 



This term our PE days will be Monday and Thursday.  Please ensure that the children have all of the correct kit in school on this day and that long hair is tied back.  Could children also please have both trainers and daps as part of their kit so they have the appropriate footwear for both indoor and outdoor PE. We do not allow the children to wear earrings for PE so please can they be removed on these days or taped over.  It would be appreciated if P.E. kits could be kept in school throughout the week, as there may be other opportunities where P.E. kit is required.


Numeracy and spellings:

Numeracy homework and spellings will be given out on a Friday and due in/tested the following Wednesday. Your child should be able to complete this work independently as it will be based on work they have already done in class. Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any concerns.

It is also beneficial if all children regularly practise their times tables facts in order to improve speed of recall. Times Table Rockstars is a great resource to support this and it can be accessed on laptops and tablets at home. Times table recall remains a focus this year and children will be tested weekly through ‘Times Table Olympics’ to ensure that recall is quick and accurate. (No counting up on fingers allowed)


We are also encouraging all children to read at home; this needs to be recorded into the children's reading records. It is very important for the children to read regularly and understand their reading so that they can take the Accelerated Reader quizzes within school. When your child gets 85% or above in these quizzes, they are rewarded with a star which is put onto a class chart. We are aiming for 100 stars so that we can have a class treat!

We will be adding photos, news and pieces of work regularly to this page so make sure you come back soon.

Thanks for visiting.
