News and Reminders


Reading - continuous reading at home is very important. Most children will not have an individual reading record, but will instead read a whole class text. Chapters or sections will be set for homework twice a week.

If the text is too challenging for your child to read independently then please could you read this text at home together. Each child will have a numbered copy of the text for which they are responsible. 

.It is essential that the children remember to bring these class books in for follow-up work as we will be using them during our English lesson too.


Children can access Lexia at home (see link above).  Login details have been provided in the homework book. 



Maths: Children have also received a login for Times Table Rockstars - an online resource to encourage pupils to be come fluent with their times tables (vitally important!). See link above. 

Children need to know their times tables for a government issued assessment that will be administrated in June 2020. It is essential that they use Times Table Rock Stars and also complete homework sheets in order that they are able to recall  their tables fluently.

Ancient Egypt

A set of tasks have been devised which link to our current topic. This homework is not compulsory and you/your child may choose from the activities those which you feel would be most appropriate. Any homework produced will be shared in class and will earn Class Dojos!



PE is on Thursday mornings. Could you please ensure that your child has a labelled P.E kit (including names written on the inside of P.E pumps/trainers) at all times. Children may have additional PE sessions so please ensure all kits are kept in school. 

This can be taken home at half term to be laundered. The kit can contain joggers and a warm top.



Please remember to remove all earrings and other jewellery before coming to school.
