Useful information:
 
  • ​Spellings are given out on Mondays, to be tested the following Monday.
  • Changing home reading books The children have an allocated day of the week to change their reading book, with help from Mrs Gregory.  We will check each child's reading record every week.  There are many books at the back of the classroom, for the children to choose from, if they are reading more than one book a week.  The children can help themselves to these books at any time! 
  • P.E. lessons are on Tuesday afternoon (fitness with a trained coach!) and on Thursday afternoon (dance or gymnastics). The children also have the opportunity to join the Paceball club - held on Monday lunchtime, at 12.20 on the school field.  The girls also have the opportunity to learn hockey with a coach on Wednesday lunchtime, at 12.30 on the school field.  
  • Swimming lessons will start in the Spring Term.  More information to come soon!
  • Maths homework will sometimes include an online homework - for which the children will require their Active Learn username and password.
