Important Reminders

Children will be let out at the end of the day at 3:10.

Children can have a healthy snack at play time, please can they leave it in their book bag or packed lunch box.

Please remember to be dressed ready for PE every Thursday.  

You will need a red top, black shorts or jogging bottoms and plimsolls.  School jumpers can be worn too.

 Spellings are given each week on a Thursday to be practiced at home.  

Please look for your spellings in your reading and in games.  Tests will be each Friday morning.

 Number bonds and times tables are tested every Wednesday.  

There are many online and interactive games which can help you practice these.

Please read at home regularly and record what you have read and comment.  Reading makes a huge difference to our writing as we learn new and exciting words.  Can you spot any onomatopoeia?  What new vocabulary can you find?  Please use the guided reading questions given to you in week 1 to support your reading at home.  If you'd like a copy please ask.

Times Tables Practice

As part of your weekly homework, you should be practicing your times tables. In order to help you build up your speed of recall, you should try completing some of the times tables activities on the Purple Mash site.

Please login using the Purple Mash login at the front of your homework book. Make sure you are logging into our school on Purple Mash – the website is:


The more you practice the quicker your recall of facts will be.


 It is fantastic to be able to see children make independent choices in their learning at home and share e-learning with their families.
