Homework will consist of weekly spellings, multiplication facts and reading. Any additional work that is sent home will be tailored to the individual needs of your child.

PE kits need to be in school everyday and we will send it home when it needs washing. Children will have PE on a Monday and Wednesday. This term we will focus on gymnastics and dance. 

We always encourage the children drink plenty of water throughout the day, please can you make sure your child has a named water bottle in school. 

Children are able to change their reading book everyday within school time.
