Key Information

 

Our PE days will be Tuesday and Friday. Please ensure your child brings their PE kit into school on these days and their kit is clearly named. Please also remember long hair must be tied back and jewellery cannot be worn during PE.

 

Homework will be set every Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. Homework is important as it will mainly revise and consolidate previous learning and, on occasions, involve research. Your child will also be given weekly spelling lists to learn every Monday and they will be tested on Fridays. We ask that you please support your child in completing their homework by the stated date and in practising their spellings in preparation for weekly tests. If your child is unsure of any aspect of their homework or weekly spellings, please encourage them to discuss this with me.
