The most important homework for your child will always be their reading. Your child will bring home his/her reading book every night with their own reading record. 

Please sign the reading record book to indicate your child has read.

 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 for the Springterm 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. The homework given is difficult and gets more so as the activity goes on. I only expect children to complete sections A and B. Section C is at the discretion of the parent.

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


We will have P.E. on Mondays. 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.

 Helping your child 

There are a variety of websites that can be helpful to assist your child with their learning. There are so many to list the best case is often simply to google what you’d like to find. The Welsh assembly have created a website where parents can gain access to a range of materials. This can be found at

For example, the children have to complete Mathematical Reasoning tests at the end of the year. Here is the link to the support materials. (You’ll see how difficult they are and what they children in each year are expected to achieve.)

 We also use a range of devices in school to assist with learning. Some of the key apps we used that are linked to the ipads include pages, imovies and numbers.
