Key Information 


Children are expected to read regularly at home and to complete an AR book quiz each week.
Click here to access the Accelerated Reader website.

We have time dedicated for children to read their selected reading book but we encourage as much as possible to also listen to them read at home. 




Each week children will be required to practise a set list of spellings. Spelling tests are taken on a Thursday. Their test scores will be recorded at the bottom of the relevant pages in their spelling booklet. Children will also record which words they still need to learn from the spelling test 



Each week we complete a CLIC quiz in school. Part of the maths homework is to look at which questions they did not get right in that week's CLIC quiz and to spend a little time practising at home ready for the next CLIC quiz. 


Creative Curriculum 

Children will need to select an area of our Creative Curriculum learning that they are interested in to find out more about that area. For instance, if the children have been interested in learning about the different Oceans they may decide to create a factfile for one of the oceans or seas that they are most interested about it. They can then bring in their yellow homework book at the end of the half term for us to take a look at and give out merits if the work is of a good quality



Our PE day is Tuesday. 

Please make sure that your child has their full PE kit in school on these days.

This should include:

School PE top

Black PE shorts 

Black pumps 


Long hair should be tied up on PE days and if your child wears earrings they must remove them before the lesson as they are getting changed or cover them with a suitable tape or plasters bought from home. 


Children will be asked to take home PE kits to be washed over the weekend and will need to have them back in school by the following Tuesday.
