We have P.E twice a week. Please ensure your child has their P.E kit in school to be able to take part. They will have their kit sent home at the end of each half term.
A learning journal question is set every two weeks and should be returned to school by the following Thursday.
Children will be set Math homework every Friday. The maths homework is designed to support your child with the rapid recall of a variety of mathematical concepts. The homework is verbal and does not need to be returned to school, we trust that the children will complete the homework that has been set.
Children are set spellings each week by their teacher on a Monday. Please practice them ready for the spelling test on the Friday.
Please also ensure you read with your child for ten minutes every night. Don't forget to sign your child's reading record. This needs to be signed everyday.
