Indoor PE or Swimming is on Monday


Whilst the hall is out of use we shall be improving our cross country running skills on the field. If your class isn't swimming please come to school in outdoor PE kit as listed below. Don't forget your spare socks, just in case your feet get wet!


Outdoor PE with Mr Dixon is on a Wednesday afternoon. 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. 


English and Maths are set each week and the children have a week to complete the activity. Partners at home, we  would really appreciate your support with this at home. Work set is usually consolidation and application. Ongoing home work should be reading and times tables for a short period each day. If you have any questions or issues you would like to raise with us, please feel free to approach us in the playground after school or send an email via the office and we shall get back to you as quickly as possible smiley


Reading is a valuable skill that all children should have the opportunity to develop. We would like to work together with you to develop your child's reading. You can support this by reading with your children at home and sign the yellow reading record to let us know how they are getting on. Books can be changed once the children have finished them and they are returned to school. We encourage the children to read a wide range of texts and different genres. Guided reading takes place each week with the class teacher.
