Homework and Spellings


Spellings will be given out every Friday and tested the following Wednesday. Nothing needs handing in for these.

Learning log homework will be given out at the beginning of each half term. (Please see below for a link to our learning log homework sheet)


Children are also expected to read their home reading books every night. These will be changed on a Friday for Y1. Y2 books will be changed when they have finished it, after completing a quiz on it. If they have read their books they can read any other books at home and take part in their READING CHALLENGE! (Reading challenge sheets are also below)


Can I please ask that you sign your child's reading diary so I know they have completed their reading homework. This is very important as children receive a sticker and a smiley face for reading at home :)


Please ensure children have both indoor and outdoor PE kit in school every day as we may change the day we do PE. If your child has earrings please ensure they can take them out or have plasters to cover them.


Toast is £1.00 a week and children bring this in on a Monday. However they are welcome to bring their own healthy snack instead.


Please make sure your contact details are up to date in case of emergency. We will try all numbers given in the case of an emergency if we cannot reach the first contact.



If you have any problems please don't hestitate to contact me. :)
