We ask that you please check your child's book bag every night to ensure that you are receiving all the information that we send home. Additional information can also be found here or alternatively feel free to pop in and see a member of staff.



Please try to read every night with your child. It will really help them to progress in all curriculum areas. In their book bags, children bring home a staged reading book to share with you. Please remember to make sure reading is an enjoyable experience and record any reading whatsoever in their reading record. Sharing books is a fantastic way to develop good communication and language skills also. Talking about books develops comprehension.


Our class author this year is Anthony Browne, therefore we will share lots of his texts, such as Willy and Hugh, Willy's Stories, My Dad, Voices in the Park, Through the Magic Mirror and many, many more.



Children will receive spellings to learn every Friday. Each day, in school, they will focus on three of these spellings. Additional topic words will be introduced in school also. For their weekly maths homework, children should log in to TTRockstars and DoodleMaths. Half-termly homework projects are also set and these are listed below.



During the first half of the summer term, P.E will take place on a Monday and there will be swimming on Wednesdays.


Swimming kit is:

  • trunks (no baggy shorts)
  • swimming costume
  • swimming cap
  • towel
  • No jewellery is permitted. Please leave it at home.


Our P.E kit includes the following:

  • White polo shirt
  • Navy blue shorts
  • Black pumps 

​During the colder months children can also wear the following:

  • Dark tracksuit bottoms 
  • School jumper  


Please place PE kits in a PE bag. These are left in school. They will be sent home half-termly in order to be cleaned and returned. Thank you.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see us at the end of the day.
