Important information:
- Reading Records are handed in and changed every Monday morning. Please make sure that your child's reading record and reading book are in their bag every day, as we have silent reading and guided reading opportunities throughout the week.
- English homework and Maths homework are to be handed in every Friday. Homework is marked together to consolidate learning and address misconceptions, so it is important that homework is completed and handed in on time each week.
- Spellings are set every Friday, with a spelling test taking place every Friday morning.
- PE is on Wednesday afternoons, with Mr Donnelly from Premier Sports. It is important that pupils have their full PE kit in school each week.
