Our PE days are Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure your child comes to school in their full P.E kit on these days. It is expected that all items are named.


The children will need their swimming kits every Wednesday - At present there are no swimming lessons due to the current pandemic .


Our class visits the library on a Thursday so please make sure books are brought back to be changed.


The children will be given spellings to learn every Monday and will be tested on them the following Monday. Please support your child in learning their spellings through the week.

A homework grid relating to the topic being covered will be sent  home at the beginning of each half term. The children are expected to research and produce answers to at least 2 of the questions. They can answer the questions with as much creativity as they wish. They will be expected to share their work with the rest of the class.
