Spellings / Tables Homework and Word Problems Mr B's & Miss L's

Hooray! It's homework time again. You will notice that we have changed the handback day to Wednesdays. This is the day we will look at the homework, and test spellings and tables. Have fun!


A polite reminder that all children must have a full PE kit.  This should include a plain white t-shirt and dark shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms.  PE is usually twice a week: Mondays with Mr Bunce & Miss Turner, and Thursdays with Mr Simms (Premier Sports).  As long as the weather is dry, we'll generally be outside.
