Happy New Year!

We hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends as well as a well earned rest after a long and busy autumn term. Huge thanks for all the support given to our Christmas activities - both the concert and fair were brilliantly successful once again this year.




  • PE Days - This term PE is still on MONDAYS, WEDNESDAYS and FRIDAYS. Please ensure you have your kit in school on the correct days.

What do we need to remember to bring to school?


Our PE days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please make sure you bring your kit (white T-shirt, black shorts / skirts/ jogging bottoms and trainers). All long hair should be tied back and under no circumstances should jewellery be worn.


Homework tasks for both English and Maths will be given out every Friday, with the work due in the following Thursday. If you do not bring the tasks in to school by Friday, you will have to miss playtime as a consequence. Please bring your yellow homework diary with you so we can record all of your tasks clearly. Remember to ask your parent or carer to sign your homework diary ready for each Friday.


Spelling tests will take place every few weeks to enable us to test you on what you have remembered of the spelling rules and letter patterns we have covered. You will not be given a list of words to learn to spell, but will need to learn how to use the spelling rule being taught.


Please remember to bring your reading book and reading record every day in order to read in class and to an adult if necessary.


If you should have any questions regarding your learning, please do come and speak to me at a convenient time.
