PE- Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure that PE kits are in school on these days. Please remove all jewellery and ensure hair is tied back.


Reading – Each child will be given a reading book and a reading diary. Parents are expected to hear their children read at least 5 times per week. Children are praised for reading at home by moving along our reading track.


Phonics- sessions take place daily and children are carefully grouped into the phase of phonics they are working at. These sessions concentrate on learning letters, sounds and the spelling and reading of high frequency words. 


Homework – Children will be set homework every Friday. They will receive:

  • Handwriting practise
  • Maths / topic homework 
  • Bear words (as necessary)
  • Spellings to learn
