  • Homework will be given out every Thursday and marked the following week.
  • Children will receive Maths homework and English homework which will normally be set from the CPG books. 
  • Spellings will be given out every Wednesday and tested the following week.
  • Please listen to your children reading aloud at least 4 times a week and question them on the text.
  • Children are to practise their timestables as often as possible up to 12 x 12 and the corresponding division facts. 

The children will continue to bring their diaries and reading books home every day.  Thank you for hearing them read a few times each week and discussing the text  - I really do appreciate your support.


Please can the children initially try to do the questions in their homework without support – then if they need any prompts or help, please do support them.  If you have any concerns, please write a note in the homework book.  Many thanks.


Wider Curriculum

This half term, in RE, we are studying Life in the Risen Jesus. Our Geography topic is Rivers and our Science topic is Forces.


PE will be on Tuesday afternoons this half term. 


Please can the children come to school wearing PE kits on Tuesdays - thank you. (Please check website for correct kit.) School sweatshirts and navy jogging bottoms can also be worn for warmth.

Forest School

Forest School will continue to be on Wednesday afternoons with Mrs Stokes, Mr Davies (a Governor) and Mr Thomas.  Please can the children come to school wearing Forest School clothes on Wednesdays - thank you.  They should wear trainers in the morning and bring a bag with their Forest School wellies/boots, their waterproof jackets and trousers. On cold days, please bring extra warm layers, hats and gloves.


Please label all PE kit, Forest School kit and boots.  It is so easy to return an item if it is labelled and so hard if it is not!


Keeping warm

Because of Covid 19, the classroom must be well-ventilated and can become chilly.  Please ensure that the children have layers so that they stay warm.



If you have any concerns, please contact the school office and I will be happy to discuss these with you.

Thank you for your continued support

Mrs Harkness
