Our Class book will be 'Nell and the Circus of Dreams'

including Fiction and Non-fiction books.

Our Class Timetable





  • Reading books should be read at home at least 4 times per week.                                                   Can your child read the book independently using their phonic knowledge and skills?                Can they answer different types of questions linked to our reading gems about what they have read?  Help us reach our reading at home target each week by listening to your child read each day and signing their reading record.



  • Homework will be given out on Thursdays and will include maths and spellings. Homework books must be put in the tray in the cloakroom by Tuesday each week. Read and respond books will have a record card each week so that you know which pages/chapter to read to your child. Our read and respond lessons are on Fridays so this must be completed by then.


  • Library sessions are on Monday each week. Children will have the opportunity to visit our school library and borrow a book to take home!



  • PE kits must have names clearly written on each item of clothing. Please wear PE kits to school on a Thursday our PE days can change half termly. Don't forget your trainers!



  • Milk can be paid for online and costs £1.05 per week.



  • Water bottles will be taken home every Friday to be washed. Children can bring these back to school on Mondays. Water bottles can be bought for £1 from the school office.
