We are looking forward to all the exciting work we have planned for this school year.

On a Tuesday afternoon Schools Sports Partnership will teach PE and Mrs Houghton will teach RE.


Here is what we will be learning about this term.

So what else do you need to know?





Reading with your child is so important and links to all areas of learning. Please listen to your child read and record in reading record books. Children can choose books from the class library to bring home. They will also be given a reading record which children must bring them in on a Wednesday so we can check on their reading.  We will be rewarding children who are reading at home. Children have been given a new reading challenge for this term. Children can collect raffle tickets for reading and a Waterstones gift card will be given to a lucky winner in a prize draw.



Online weekly spellings will be on spelling frame and dojo on a Friday ready for our test the following Friday. .  Although the spellings are on the spelling frame website not all words are available so please check dojo for the full list.


Times tables

Please encourage your children to learn their tables. They are encouraged to use TT Rock Stars and Maths Frame Multiplication check. Children will be shown how to use these in the first few weeks of term.


Thank you for all your support and hard work with your child at home. It really makes a difference.
