Important information for parents.

  • P.E. will be every Monday and Wednesday - children must bring their P.E. kits in order to take part. P.E. kit consists of: white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps/trainers.
  • Spelling tests are now held every 2 weeks and new spelling rules are sent home every other Wednesday: tests are every other Friday.
  • Times table tests will be every Wednesday. Please ensure your children work on their times tables at home.
  • We recommend that the children read a book (whether that be their home reader or a book of their choice) at least 3 times a week. This will help improve their: fluency, decoding, expression, ability to draw inference and complete comprehension questions about such texts.

Reading record books are collected in every Friday
