Additional Information


  • We will have a spellings test every Friday. The spellings lists for both groups are below. 
  • As explained at Parents Information Evening, some classes are choosing to upload homework weekly onto the class page as a sustainable alternative to printing it out. Homework sheets do not need to be printed at home, your child can write down the answers to the worksheet into their book. 


  • If your child is still on Read Write Inc, books will be given out every Monday. It is encouraged that your child reads their home reader 3 times. Your child may receive a reader that they have read before (i.e in Year 2) but it is important that they still read it to help further improve their fluency. 
  • If your child is a free reader, books will not be given out and your child is encouraged to practise reading with books they have at home. 


  • P.E will be on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Your child will need to bring in their P.E kit to change into at lunchtime. As the weather is now colder, please ensure your child has a jumper and tracksuit bottoms because we will still be doing P.E outside. 
  • Please make sure your child has a water bottle to keep hydrated throughout the day as well as a piece of veg or fruit for morning snack. (Free fruit is no longer given out in KS2)
