Please ensure that your child brings their PE kit to school on a Monday and takes it home on a Friday.


We do PE on Mondays and Wednesdays




We will be following the Read Write Inc (RWI) scheme again and with a small assessment on a Monday with a spelling sheet going home on a Tuesday. We welcome feedback from parents and are happy to support you with learning activities your child can do at home.



Our homework is to read to an adult at home at least three times a week. There is a bookmark in your child's planner that has example question starters to use to question your child on what they are reading. This will enhance your child's understanding of what they are reading. A copy of this bookmark can be found in the 'Curriculum' area of the website.


This year, we will continue with Accelerated Reader, a site that allows children to complete quizzes for the appropriate books they have read. Please press here for a link to the Accelerated Reader Information Booklet that was handed out at parent's evening.


Books will be changed daily for different groups of children if the online quiz has been completed on Accelerated Reader. In our letters section, there is a step-by-step guide for how to use Accelerated Reader to complete the quizzes. 


Reading, Maths, Grammar and Punctuation Workbooks

Homework booklets are sent home every Friday. The pages which need to be completed are written on the correct pages and are also sent home in a text. Please only complete the pages which have been set.

Our summer topics:

China & Volcanoes
