Autumn 1 and 2 class reads


PE and Forest School are every Wednesday and children are asked to come in PE kits. It is advised that jewellery and watches stay at home and any long hair should be tied back. Children should also be reminded to bring spare footwear/ wellies and socks for Forest Schools.

Homework will be set every Friday, to be checked the following Thursday, and this will consist of activities from mathletics, times tables, and spellings. Additional homework may occasionally be set if children need further practice at particular skills or work in class.



Times Tables

As you are probably aware, the government recently created a times table check at the end of year 4. To prepare the children for this, please encourage the children to regularly practise their tables. This can be done using the websites below:
