Day to day


PE lessons will be on a Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure your child keeps thier PE kit in school and they will be sent home half termly. 


Daily reading, spellings and timetables remain key priorities in weekly homework. Alongside this the children will now receive either a piece of literacy or maths homework that will be stuck into their homework books and given out on a Wednesday. This work will be expected in on the following Monday. If homework is not completed regularly children will be asked to attend homework club on a Thursday break time. Children will also be given one project per half term that will be linked to their class topic. The children will be given all half term to complete their projects and a date will be set in the last week of term when these are due in. More information about homework can be found in your child’s homework books.


Children to spend the week learning a spelling rule or set of high frequency words. Words will be given out on Mondays to practice in the week and will be tested on Fridays. Mrs Cashmore's group will be tested on the words alone but Mrs Stead's group will be asked to put their word into a sentence.

Times table challenge

On Mondays and Thursdays children will be tested on their times table challenge. They will be given 2 minuites to answer as many mixed up questions as they can on their given times table. We start with the 2s, then 5s and then 10 times tables before moving onto the 2s, 5s and 10s mixed bronze award. The children must achieve 12 or more out of 15, 3 consecutive times to move onto the next challenge. Scores will be stuck into their times table books as well astimetable sheets and worksheets to practice with.


Please continue to bring money in daily in purses or wallets. Fruit and milk are still given out daily.

Reading books

Please make sure reading books are in school everday. Take time to make sure you are enjoying a range of texts with your children.
