Class Information

Class Information


It is essential that children read at home at least four times per week. Regular reading has an enormous impact on children’s learning and confidence across the curriculum. Reading books are changed on Tuesdays. Please ensure your child brings in their bookbag and reading books to ensure they get a change of books for the week ahead.


Children must ensure that their PE kits are in school for their PE lessons every Tuesday and Thursday. PE kits should only be brought into school on these days. It is also especially important that children bring in their water bottles on these days.


Children are set homework each Friday. This year, homework will be set via Google Classroom and will be handed in electronically by the following Thursday.

Online Learning

At St James, we currently use Google Classroom to access online learning. Your child will have their own login to access this platform. If you have any issues accessing the Google classroom please contact us at school.
