PE Days

Our timetabled PE days are  Wednesday for outdoor and Friday 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,


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 5-10 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. 


Times tables - Each week the children in Year 6 learn a times table in class. The are then tested on a times table set each week. If the children receive full marks on their respective times tables they move on to the next set. The children will stick in their times table test scores each week so you can track how they are doing at home.

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.
