Item Day Information

Library Sessions




The library is open every Tuesday from 3.30pm to 4pm for children to borrow a book.

Each book can be borrowed for 14 days. It then needs to be returned to the library and changed or renewed

However, in year 6, children who are free readers are allowed to select library books as their home reader.



PE Sessions


Tuesday 1.15pm to 3.15pm


Please ensure your child has their full named 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. 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 5 times a week, with an adult MINIMUM.

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 activities 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.
