PE Days


Autumn term 2017


Maple Class have PE on a Monday and a Tuesday.

Holly and Hazel Class have PE on a Tuesday and a Thursday.



For hygiene reasons children need to bring in their kit on the day that we have PE.

We expect children to have in school: T-shirt, shorts/tracksuit bottoms, trainers.

They may also want to bring a sports jacket for cold weather.

Please ensure your child is able to take out their earrings or has tape to cover them. All children with long hair will be required to tie it back.


We will be going outside for PE in all weathers.





Homework will be sent home on a Friday, and is due the following Wednesday.

English homework will be sent home one week, and then Maths homework the next.

Each week's list will consist of 10 words which the children will bring home on a Monday to be tested on Friday. Children will be expected to get at least 7 out of the 10 correct

Any questions please come and ask.


We expect spellings to be practised at home as well as in school.



It is vital that reading happens at home as well as in school and will help them in all areas of their learning.

We expect children to be reading at least 4 times a week at home. This can be aloud, to someone else, or in their head.

When your child reads at home please sign their link book. The children will have a target/question at the bottom of the week's page, this is to help you support your child with their reading. This link book will also be used to communicate messages between home and school, so it is vital children have it in school each day.

By reading 20 times at home, children will earn a bookmark.

By reading 40 times at home, children will be able to choose a reading book to keep.

Times tables

The National Curriculum states that children should know their times tables up to 12 x12 by the end of Year 4, and are something that are essential to children’s Mathematic learning and confidence.


We encourage practicing times tables at home, focusing on the ones those children feel less confident with.

It is important that children know their times tables ‘out of order’; meaning that they are able to recall them quickly.
