Teaching Assistant: Mrs Boswell

General information


This term, PE will be on Wednesdays and Fridays so please ensure you come to school in your PE kit, we will be going outside in most weathers so please dress appropriately. In Winter months, if it is not raining, we will still do some lessons outside so please ensure children have warm clothing, e.g. tracksuit bottoms, and trainers where possible as pumps do not provide the grip needed for outdoor sports. Please remove your child's earrings on these days before they attend school if they cannot take them out themselves as we can not help them. 


- Reading: Children are expected to read at least 3 times a week for an extended time. This should be recorded by the child or their parent/carer in their reading record book. If the child writes in their own reading record book, it should be signed by an adult to confirm. 

For Year 6 book ideas, please follow the link below.

- Maths: Children are set weekly homework via MyMaths. Please click here to be directed to information about how to access using your tablet. See files to download at the bottom of this page for school login information. 

For additional times tables practise, please practise using TT Rockstars

- Homework will be set on a Thursday and needs to be returned the following Wednesday. This homework will include a variety of activities including: comprehension, spelling, punctuation, grammar and maths. Sometimes this homework will be available online only.
