Essential information:


  • PE lessons will be on Fridays. Your child will need their PE kit in school each week, with all items of clothing (and shoes) clearly labelled with their name. During the first half term, the children will be developing their skills in gymnastics, so, for their own safety, it is vital that they have appropriate clothing for PE.


  • Homework will be set every week on Fridays, due back the following Wednesday. This will include spellings. The homework will contain activities and tasks to help them revisit and embed their skills in preparation for the following week’s learning.
  • Home reading allows pupils to maintain their interest in books and reading for pleasure. The reading records should be signed and returned to school for new books to be borrowed and read. Children should be encouraged to choose texts from different genres to enable them to experience a variety of text structures and styles of writing.
