PE and Games will be held on a Tuesday afternoon. Currently children are to arrive for school already dressed for this subject in their PE kit. (it may get quite cold at times, please do make sure your child has an extra layer that they may choose to put on to keep warm)


Children will require a named water bottle in school every day.


Children may bring a snack of fruit or vegetable to eat during morning break. This should be kept in their school bag, separate to their lunch box.




  • Maths homework will usually take around 30 minutes. Maths homework will be sent out via Google Classrooms. This will be set on a Thursday and due in on a Monday.
  • Learning logs will be a range of optional activities and will be sent out on Google Classrooms and should take an hour each to complete. If you choose to do any of these, please submit one per week to allow class teachers time to view these and comment.
  • Please endeavour to read with your child 3 times a week and record it in the reading record.
  • Spelling lists will be given weekly. A Look, cover, write, check sheet (sent via Google Classrooms) should be completed or an alternative method used. Spellings will be given on a Thursday and then tested the following Thursday.
  • 5² mental maths weekly practise: 5 minutes, 5 times per week (themes to be sent each Thursday via Google classrooms).


For further guidance and support please go to the homework and learning logs area of our website at:


Learning Outside of the Classroom


Some aspects of this topic will be taught outside of the classroom to provide an enriched learning experience for the children. Please ensure your child comes to school with weather appropriate clothing (a warm waterproof coat and gloves are a necessity).
