Academic Year 2019-2020


P.E will be on a Wednesday afternoon this term as they will be swimming for half of the term (we will send a reminder nearer the time). The children will need their outdoor P.E kit. Please ensure your child has their PE kit at school ready for use and that all clothing is clearly named.


Recorders will be taught again in the second half of this term. If the children have their own recorder that they would like to use they may bring it in. Please make sure it is named. We have school recorders, so do not worry if they don’t have one.




All homework, with the exception of spelling, is handed out on a Thursday and due in the following Monday, unless specified. Everyone will have three homework books: Learning Log; Maths and Spelling.


  • Daily reading – at least three times per week
  • Maths – to be completed in homework books or the teacher may set MyMaths to be completed on the computer; 5² mental maths; and a weekly Times Tables focus
  • Learning Logs – the children will be given an optional half termly homework passport with six optional activities to complete during the half term. As each one is completed these can be handed in.
  • Spelling – will be stuck into the front of their spelling homework book. There will then be a test which the children will complete in the back of their homework book each Wednesday. Please ensure you review your child’s progress and continue to work on any spelling corrections.


Please ensure that you write a comment in your child’s homework book if you have any questions or comments; this will let us know how your child is getting on.

Pencil case contents: Pen* (if they have a pen licence), pencil, rubber, ruler, sharpener, glue stick and colouring pencils. It would be really helpful if you could check they have all the belongings suggested. All items should be named.


*The children should use a rollerball, fibre tip or ink (fountain) pen in dark blue or black.
