Please note that an indoor PE kit consists of yellow t-shirt, black shorts and black sand shoes. When children have PE outdoors, they must wear trainers and joggers are permitted in colder weather.

All children must participate in PE lessons unless they have a medical reason and a letter must be sent from parents to excuse them. 
Earrings must be removed by the child, as staff are unable to assist due to health and safety issues. If they can't remove them, please ensure on PE days, they are removed at home before coming to school.

Homework


All children are given weekly spellings to learn and they are tested on a Friday. Teachers will sometimes give extra homework for the children to complete which may link to their topic or science work.

The most important homework you can do at home is to make sure your child is:
  • reading every night for at least 15 minutes 
  • learn all the times tables up to 12 x 12. 
  • telling the time
  • access Reading Eggs and Mathletics
Educational research has shown that reading daily at primary age helps children to perform even better in high school when they sit further exams.

If your child is a confident reader we would encourage you to hear them read and then extend their understanding through questioning. For example; 'Why did the character say/do that?' 'What do you think may happen next?' If you struggle to get your child to read, try offering them magazines, comics or anything that interests them. 

Learning Mentors


Mrs Bell, our learning mentor, is available every day to help with any problems and answer any queries you may have. She can be contacted by telephone or in person.
