Homework
Homework

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  Wednesday and Thursday. This term we will be learning about the skills used in hockey and dance.  Our hockey lessons will be outside, so please ensure your child has some navy blue tracksuit bottoms and a jumper. 

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.
