English and Maths are set each week and the children have a week to complete the activity. Lists of spellings will be sent out regularly for the children to practice at home using methods of their choice. Parents and carers, we would really appreciate your support with this at home. Work set is usually consolidation and application. Ongoing home work should be reading, spelling 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. Whole class reading takes place each week with the class teacher.

Parents / Carers - If your child has SEND, click the link below to visit the SEND section of the website which offers advice and ideas for you and your child to support their Home Learning.
