P.E. will be on a Monday. Children may leave their PE kits in their locker for the full half term. 

 

Homework does not need to be returned - please keep all homework at home. 

 

Homework will be sent out on Fridays and needs to be completed. Homework books can be return to school on a Wednesday and will be quarantined before being handed back out again. We ask that you use TT Rockstars as the maths homework. 

 

Children should also be reading a minimum of 3 times and have these written in their reading diary and signed by an adult which should be in school every day.

 

They also have a spelling test on their weekly spellings on a Friday afternoon. Please make sure your child has a copy of the spellings to practise. We are following the Spelling Shed scheme, which you can sign up to at home for extra spelling activities.
