You have 3 books that we have sent home for you . You should have a RWI book we have read 3 times at school, a RWI Book Bag book to read at home and a book from the class library to share together. These books will be changed weekly and it is a good idea for you to read each book more than once to help you become a fluent reader. We have also sent home a journal for you to keep a record of home reading. It is very helpful if an adult can sign this and let us know what you have read at home. Please bring your journal and reading books to school each day in your book bag. We have a reading challenge in the classroom and we give out certificates and prizes, each time you read 10 times at home!



Our PE lessons are on Wednesday and Thursday each week. Please come to school in your PE kit on these days.


Our PE kit is:

  • navy or black shorts.

  • plain white T-shirt.
  • plain navy or black sweatshirt and jogging bottoms for colder weather.
  • trainers or plimsolls suitable for outdoor P.E.



Homework will be given out on Friday and should be handed in by the following Wednesday. There will be a piece of maths and some spellings given out each week to learn. We will give a sticker for homework that is handed in on time and for any Topic work completed. We always look forward to seeing the work you have done at home.


Show and tell

Show and tell will take place every Friday afternoon. Children can bring something in to show to the rest of the class and tell them a bit about their item.
