Reading Morning:  8:40-8:55 

It is of the utmost importance that you read with your child every day.  The children change their books 3 times a week; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.




Spellings are given out every week on Friday. Spelling books should be returned on Wednesday so that new spellings can go home and our spelling test is on Thursday. Please help your children practice their spellings daily.


Learning Logs

Each half term we will have a topic based home learning project. Every child should complete at least one activity each week. Please feel free to help your child make, models, encourage them to draw pictures and write sentence about the topic. We look forward to seeing them in class. 

Help your child at home


  • count in multiples of 2, 3, 5 and 10
  • learn the times tables up to 12
  • talk about shapes and their properties
  • measure things using a ruler
  • add and subtract 2 digit amounts
  • Tell the time using analogue and digital clocks.   Extend this by looking at roman numerals. 


PE takes place on  Friday morning for Orion Class and Comet class Friday afternoon for Pluto Class.  Please make sure your children have a full P.E kit on these days.
