Things to remember:

  • School times – 8.45am – 3.15pm. Classroom doors are open from 8:35.
  • Uniform – please make sure ALL items of clothing are named, including coats and hats.
  • PE– Tuesday and Thursday. Every Tuesday afternoon your child will be taking part in swimming sessions and must remember their swimming kit. On Thursday we will be taking part in a dance session. It is important that your child has their indoor PE kit for these sessions.
  • Homework will be given out on a Friday and due in on the following Wednesday- please support your child with this where possible. If you have any problems completing this, please let me know.
  • Weekly spellings will be given out on a Monday to be practised at home ready for a test on Friday.
  • Your child will have two instant recall target facts (SMIRFs) for maths and these are found at the back of their reading record. Please support your child to practise these at home ready to be tested in school. If you don’t have your child’s targets, please let me know and I can get them for you. Please do not hesitate to ask, if you have any questions regarding the SMIRF targets.
  • Daily reading – your child will bring home a reading book each day, please sign in your child’s reading record and indicate pages read.  We are also completing a reading challenge– each time your child reads at home they will get a stamp. When your child reaches 21 stamps they will receive a special prize!


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me or get in touch, the door is always open! 


Thank you for your support.
