Homework will be sent out each Friday in the homework books. These tasks are to be completed and sent back to school by Wednesday of the following week. The homework that is set is always to consolidate what has been learnt in school.

Spellings will be issued every Friday for a test on Monday. Re-tests will take place on Fridays. Please support your child in learning these spellings.


Our PE days this term are as follows:



The children are expected to wear their full PE kits on both of these days.


Forest School (Bushcraft) will be taking place with Miss Ashton on Tuesday afternoons. These sessions will take place approximately once every four weeks and the children should wear warm, outdoor clothing to school on this day. Forest School days will be communicated in class to the children and reminders sent home via Marvellous Me.


We are proud to be a PATHS school. PATHS is our SEL curriculum. The concepts of PATHS is interweaved into everything we do in school. We teach the children to be resilient, to solve problems and regulate their own behaviours and responses. The children learn how to respect and understand others' feelings and treat them the way they would like to be treated.
