Class Routines

  • Planners are sent home every day, please feel free to communicate via this book and remind your child to tell us if there is a message.

  • Homework will be set on a Thursday, to be returned on the following Wednesday. We will also send home spellings on the same day , to be tested on a Wednesday. Both of these will be available on the website using the links above.
    • Please ensure that your child’s uniform, bag, coat and pack up are clearly labelled. We still have lots of lost property every term!
    • Reading books should be taken home daily. We can then ensure that children get the satisfaction of sticking with a book and finishing it! We’re happy to give suggestions if it’s tricky to find a book which ‘grabs’ your child.
  • Named water bottles should be in school daily and either taken home every night or at the end of the week.
  • PE will be on Thursday mornings and one other afternoon. To allow flexibility it would still be useful if P.E. and Games kits could be kept in school all week.  If your child needs to be excused from PE, please send them with a note, either on paper or in their planner, to avoid confusion.

If there are any questions please do not hesitate contact us.
