The following information might be useful to you if you would like to help your child at home.

Please take the time to talk to your child about what they have done in their school day.

Physical Education


Our scheduled hall time is Wednesday and Thursday afternoons.

This half term we will be focusing on Basketball.


In some circumstances our PE slot may not be available and may have to be moved. Due to this reason please can you make sure your child has their PE kit in school everyday.

Sometimes PE will be outside, which will mean children will need warm clothing and trainers as well as their indoor PE kit with plimsolls. If jewellery is worn please remove this on PE days.



Homework is very important as it helps your child to go over and practice what they have learnt in school. It also helps to keep you informed on their current progress and topics within the classroom. Homework will vary each week to do with our topic including: writing, maths and creative skills.


Spellings and reading three times a week is also essential to help your child to develop and progress. In Year One we will read with the children continually in the class through whole class, group and independent activities. Each week we will try to read the child's home reading book with them and evidence this in their reading record.
