PE Days

Our timetabled PE days are  Monday for outdoor and Thursday for indoor. However, please ensure that your child’s PE kit is in school every day as these days can be subject to change at short notice.


Reading - Children are sent home with a reading book daily. We ask that parents and carers read regularly (ideally daily) with their children. If you read with your child at home please place a note in your child's reading record so they can be rewarded accordingly.


SeeSaw spellings - A online spelling activity (linked to learning in the classroom that week) is set each Monday. These tasks are due to be completed for the following Monday. These activities often follow a similar format to those taught in the classroom. This is to allow children to complete these independently. 


Spotlight spellings - Spotlight spellings are individual spelling spotted by teachers in your child's work. These spellings form a target list of spellings at the front of your child's English book which the children practice learning both at school and home. The children write down between 3-5 spellings each week in their own orange homework books. These homework books are sent home on a Thursday and should be returned by the following Monday. 


If you have any queries regarding your child's homework or if there is a reason why your child has been unable to complete their homework, please speak with their class teacher in the first instances who will be able to advise and support.
