Key Weekly Information


PE is on Mondays and Fridays. 

Please ensure children bring their PE kits in with them to change into at school.

Reading and Homework


Please ensure that you read with your child at home and fill in their reading record. It is very important to hear if you feel that the texts are too challenging or maybe, not challenging enough! It does not only need to be their school reading book that is jotted down, we love to read about all of the different sorts of texts the children have been reading throughout the week. These could include: magazines, comic books, recipes and many more. The possibilities are endless!

Reading books will go home and we will change these in the mornings. Please ensure children keep their books and reading records in their bags, so we can read these books with them at school as well.


Purple Mash logins have been sent home and there are some great games and activities to practise number facts. 


Homework is sent out every Friday. This includes a maths sheet and writing task that can be completed in the book. Homework must be handed in by Wednesday the following week.
