P.E is on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Please make sure your child has their full kit in school.
It is essential that children read at home at least four times per week. Regular reading has a enormous impact on children’s learning and confidence across the curriculum. Reading books are changed once a week. The day which your child’s book will be changed is printed on their reading record. If you need it changed before then please let us know.
Homework is given out every Friday and is to be handed in every Thursday. Spellings tests are every Friday, please keep your spelling folders until Friday so you can practice every night.

There will be a parent information session later in the year so teachers can explain the process. In the meantime, you can access information below.
There are lots of ways you can support your child prepare for these tests at home:
