Learning together, growing together

How you can help your child


On Fridays, an aspect of Maths, which we have covered during the week, will be sent home for further practice.  This should be returned to school on the following Monday. 



After baseline assessments have been completed, English spellings will also be sent home on Fridays to be learned then tested on Thursday mornings.  A score of 8/10 gets Bronze, 9/10 Silver and 10/10 Gold.  Each week, the class with the highest percentage wins the Super Spellers Star in Celebration Assembly.





Please ensure library books are brought on Thursday mornings when we are able to change them.

School-home reading books

Please ensure your child brings their reading book and record to school every day, as they practise reading ‘in their head’ and aloud to each other or an adult.  The children should read for at least 10-15 minutes every evening and at weekends so you should sign the reading record as evidence

PE Kit

We will be doing PE on Tuesday and Thursday afternoonsPlease ensure your child has kit on these days – red or white round-necked T-shirt and dark shorts (NO football strips, NO earrings or jewellery).  Jogging bottoms/ leggings and gym shoes/ trainers will be needed for outdoor games.

Please note - swimming lessons will begin after Christmas for the Spring and Summer terms.




Please check that your child’s name is written in all their PE kit and school uniform, including their coat.
