Homework

The class will also have as set of spelling words to learn each Friday and will be assessed on these the following Friday. The children have been given their spellings in a yellow book which they should bring back and forth to school everyday.

Mathematics homework will be given out on a Friday and should be completed and returned the following Wednesday.

From time there may be a topic-based project that will require more time to complete.

P.E

We will have P.E. on Tuesdays. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school (shorts, trainers, t-shirt – no hoods) on these days and that they are wearing no jewellery.  All children are expected to participate in PE lessons.
