Every week, we expect the pupils to complete their homework on the three Doodle platforms: Doodle Maths, Doodle English and Doodle Spellings (these will be called ‘Added Extras’ when logging onto these platforms.


In addition to Doodle, we expect the pupils to be reading at least 4 times a week and learning their weekly spellings. During the Spring Term, pupils will get the chance to take home some old SAT papers to practice. Please ensure these are back in school on Fridays where we will go through the answers and help address any misconceptions the children might have been having.

P.E. Days:

This term, the children will need their PE kits in school for a Thursday and Friday. We suggest the children bring their kit in at the beginning of the week and leave it in school until they finish the week on Friday.

PE Kit:

We ask the children to bring fleeces and jogging trousers as well as outdoor footwear (if required during the colder months of the year), as the children will have an indoor and an outdoor session each week. This should include:

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

Key Dates:

31st October – deadline for secondary school application

Week beginning 1st November: parents meetings

Week beginning 28th March: parents meetings

9th May – Year 6 SAT Tests

School Diary

Pupils will be receiving a new school diary. This will be complete with important school information and can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please feel free to comment on the reading children are doing at home. We encourage all parents to make a note of children’s reading as prizes will be awarded at the end of each half-term.

Reading is Fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be.

Reading develops the brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects. We recommend that children are heard for at least fifteen minutes each night and notes to be made in their planners.
