PE for the Autumn term will take place on Tuesday and Thursday. Please send children to school in PE kits on these days.
Homework will be issued through Seesaw online every Friday and due in the following Friday.
Spelling tests will take place on Wednesday morning and new spellings will be issued the same day.
Times Table tests will take place on Tuesday morning. We very much encourage the children to regularly practise their times tables at home. Being rapid and fluent in times tables is essential for future success in maths.
Your child has been given a school reading book. Please try to read with your child for a short time each night. Reading books and reading diaries should be brought into school each day. Your child's reading book will be changed once a week. Unfortunately, due to Coronavirus your child will have to wait for a period of 24 hours to receive a new reading book. This is in order to reduce the spread of Coronavirus.
Children can bring in a water bottle to keep in class, which must be clearly labelled with your child's name on it. Please note disposable water bottles are not allowed in school.
Children can bring a small individual snack for morning and/or afternoon break if you wish e.g an apple, a small packet of crisps etc.
