Class Information

Reading to your child is extremely beneficial to their learning and it’s a nice activity to do with your child/ren too. Please read daily with your child and sign their reading record book. Reading books will be changed Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Daily reading is essential. Discussing the texts, your children have just read, really helps their understanding.

Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and returned the following Wednesday. This should be children’s own work and they should spend roughly 30 minutes on each piece. Children should ensure it is completed to the best of their ability.

Spellings will also be sent out each week and these will be tested on a Friday. Spelling books need to be handed in on Thursdays.

School uniform including PE kits, coats, outdoor shoes should all be labelled clearly.

Your child will need to bring in a water bottle for school each day.
