Welcome back to Spring Term 2024!


Well - one term down already! How did that happen?! I hope you all had a lovey Christmas and everyone is back feeling refreshed!

Please note that PE days for spring 1 are now Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Our class assembly is Tuesday 30th January. We hope that parents, carers and friends can come and watch our assembly on 'girls and women in sport'! :)

There is a meeting for parents and children about Robin Wood on Monday 29th January at 5pm.

Robin Wood is Wednesday 7th February to Friday 9th February.

If you would like to see what we are learning this half term, please look at the curriculum page of our website.

Parents and carers; if you have any questions, please catch me before or after school or give me a call. You can also email the purple class email address but there may be a delay in reply on there.


I'm looking forward to another term of lots of learning, consolidation and fun!

Important information

PE - Jan 2024

PE day is Tuesday and Thursday - please ensure you come in PE kit uniform on these days.

Please have ALL clothing labelled, especially jackets and coats, so items can easily be identified if lost.

Homework and spellings:

Each week, children will be given online homework. This homework is on top of the children learning spellings, accessing Times Tables Rockstars and reading. The online homework will usually consist of maths homework on Maths.co.uk and grammar homework on Spag.com. Homework will be set on a Friday and needs completing by the following Wednesday. This will be checked and the children are expected to have completed this. 

Children should be learning spellings every week.  The list is on Teams. Children also have a spelling task sheet in their homework book from which they can select a task that they feel helps them to learn their spellings. It is also important for the children to be learning the definitions of their spellings to support their understanding of reading and comprehension texts. There will no longer be weekly spelling tests however children must continue working on their spellings each week at home and will continue to do so every day in class. 

It is important that all children are learning their times tables up to 12 x 12. They need to be able to recall multiplication and division facts. This is very important in years 5 and 6 to support the children with their everyday Maths lessons. Children should be going on TTRockstars every night.


Reading remains a key priority. Please remind your child to bring their homework diary and reading book to school every day. 

We expect to see reading diaries signed at least four times each week. The children are responsible for making sure their reading records are signed every time they read. If they are not signed, children will miss some of their golden time to read.

Your child does not have to always read to you. They can read to themselves or others. However, it is important to listen to your child regularly and support their reading and comprehension at home.

At the bottom of this page you will find a helpful document to how you can support reading at home.

The children are also allowed to read books from home and complete reading quizzes on these too.
