Library Sessions







PE Sessions


Wednesday PM & Thursday PM


Please ensure your child has their full PE kit in school. PE bags are sent home every holiday giving parents an opportunity to wash items and check that their kit still fits them. PE clothing that is too small restricts the children and is uncomfortable.
PE kits should be in school every day as on occasions PE sessions may be rearranged.




Children need to be practising their reading and maths skills 3 times a week, with an adult MINIMUM. See reading below.

Reading can consist of activities such as Page 99, Tricky Work Window, Dictionary work or answer questions about a section of the text.

Maths is in line with their record of achievement in the back of the Home Record Book.
Depending on where your child is will depend on what maths skill they are developing but no matter which one it is, the activites will be similar.
Activities such as chanting, quick fire questions, mini quizzes, googling times tables games or free apps found on tablets are great examples of what they could do. There are also links to English and Maths games in the children section of the school website.
Children will be tested weekly to achieve their Star Awards!

A list of spelling in line with the spellings pattern taught that week will be sent out on a Friday. Children will be tested on these words the following Friday as individual words and in the context of a sentence.

Some children will receive extra homework to boost their confidence in reading and arithmetic.




Handed out – ThursdayTested the following Wednesday. However, please return the blue spelling log book to school every Thursday as the book is used in school leading up to the test on Wednesday.



FridayReading record books checked. Marbles awarded. Children can change their books when they need to and need to bring their reading record books to school everyday. Please read 3 – 5 days a week.



Swimming sessions
