General Information



English homework (Spellings and SPAG) is given out every Tuesday to be handed in by the following Monday. A spelling test will also take place on this day.

Maths homework is given out every Friday to be handed in by the following Thursday. Maths homework is marked within the maths lesson on a Thursday. 


Reading books:

Children will have the opportunity to change their reading books every Wednesday. We do not expect children to have finished and therefore need to change their reading book every Wednesday - especially chapter books. Please sign their yellow reading records on a regular basis so we are able to monitor the childrens' reading. Please also record any other books they are reading in their yellow reading books as it is really important we are aware of all the books the children are reading (such as library books, books from home etc). 

Our library day is also Wednesday. Each week children will have the opportunity to return their old library book and choose another one. Again, if the children haven't finished their library book by Wednesday, there is no expectation for them to change it each week. 



Outdoor PE with Mr Dixon is on a Tuesday morning. During the Autumn and Winter months, children should wear navy or black jogging bottoms, a white or House colour (red - Lancaster, blue - York, green - Derby and yellow - Chester) with a navy or black hoodie or sweatshirt. Trainers are also required for outdoor PE. 


Getting in touch:

If you need to let your child's teacher know general information such as they are being picked up by a Grandparent etc, then a note is the easiest way to do this.

If you would let to arrange a meeting or phone call with your child's teacher then this can be done via the school office. Please email: admin@didsburyroad.stockport.sch.uk
