Key Information

P.E days:  Tuesday (outdoor) & Wednesday (indoor).

On the days that your child has a PE or Games lesson we ask that they come to school in their PE/Games kit. They will wear this kit for the whole day instead of their uniform.

Please ensure your child comes to school in the correct PE kit with a plain tracksuit and trainers/pumps to wear for the whole day. Children should not be attending school in replica sports kits, such as football kits. For more information regarding the correct P.E kit, please go to

Homework:  Every day, your child will be expected to:

  • Practise their spellings by using Spelling Shed or any other method (5 minutes)
  • Practise their times tables by using Times Table Rockstars or any other method (5 minutes)
  • Read their accelerated reading book with an adult or access their reading account on Epic (5 minutes)

Log in details for the websites are on the inside cover of your child's journal.

Spellings: The children be given a new set of spellings to take home and practice each Friday. They will then be tested on the week's spellings the following Friday. 

Times Tables: The children will be tested each Friday.

Reading:  School journals are to be used to record any reading that occurs inside and outside of school. All children should be reading every day at home.The children will be using a reading scheme called 'Accelerated Reading'. This scheme will identify a 'score' for your child and recommend suitable books based on that score. You may think that the books being recommended to your child are 'easy', but this scheme has been designed to quiz your child on their understanding of the content of the book, not the fluency of reading. Once your child completes their book, they need to bring the book into school and complete the quiz on an ipad in school. They will receive a % score and the scheme will then recommend a new book for them to read. Due to COVID19, there may be a reduced number of books available to the children to read in school. However, the children can access more books online by accessing their accounts on Epic and clicking on 'AR'. 

I will hear all of the children read each week as part of reciprocal reading sessions.
