Which days will my child need their PE kit?

Monday and Thursday

How is homework organised?

There is an expectation that children complete their spellings and read at home. Other homework may be sent home to support learning.

What reading should should my child be doing each week?

Please read as often as possible (aim for a minimum of four short 5-10 minute sessions per week) and try to read for enjoyment. It is very important to discuss the meaning of the vocabulary involved because it is surprising what a child presumes a word means. Please ask your child to explain why characters are acting in certain ways, what their emotions are at key points and encourage them to make predictions about the plot.

How will spellings be sent home and what should I do with them?

Spellings are a combination of age-expected spellings or very important vocabulary for the current topic or science. Spellings are tested weekly on Thursday morning and new words provided on Friday.

How can I contact my class teacher?

Please telephone school to arrange an appointment for either a visit or phonecall.

Alternatively email the teacher – please note that emails will not be responded to after 6pm.


What trips/visitors will my child be doing?
