School Diary

Please continue to record in your child’s school diary when they have read to be in with a chance of receiving certificates and a prize at the end of term.  This term the challenge is 100 reads between the start of the academic year to 16.12.19

This can also be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers and they will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day.


Please click on the link to view our homework for this half term.  In addition to the Bingo Homework, we would like the children to practise the 2, 3, 5 and 10 times tables as well as learn the spellings that are put in the children’s reading diaries on a weekly basis.

Physical Education

PE is every Thursday and Friday.  We ask the children to bring kit suitable for indoor and outdoor sessions.  Please make sure each item of clothing is clearly named.  This should include:

  • White T-shirt
  • Navy shorts (indoor PE)
  • Plimsolls/trainers
  • Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)

Additional Information

As teachers, we know that what may seem a little problem to an adult, can be a massive problem to a child – so please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any queries. We look forward to continuing to work with you and your child!
