 Home Learning


We can't stress enough the importance of children reading regularly at home, as this will have a great impact on their literacy skills. 

Your child's reading book will be changed on a Monday. 

Your child will be given spellings to learn every week. These words will be related to the phonics sound that they are learning in class. These will be tested every Friday. 

Your child will be given an activity book each term that will develop and strengthen their numeracy skills. 

Your child needs to have their PE kit in school at all times. They need an Indoor kit (shorts and t-shirts) and an outdoor kit (Tracksuit bottoms and a warm top). Daps are preferable, especially if children can't do up laces. All items need to be clearly named.
