Home Learning Activities


Each week your child will be provided with two home learning activities - Maths and English - to
complete at home. Home learning activities will be sent home on Wednesdays and will need to
be returned on the following Monday.

Reading at Home

Your child will be provided with a text appropriate to their reading level or, if they show
accelerated progress, encourage to select their own text. Children are required to read with
an adult three times a week and record this activity in their reading diaries. Reading records
are checked on Monday morning however, we will encourage children to bring their diaries
daily in order to create routine and allow them time to exchange books they have finished.

School Uniform & Equipment

Children are expected to wear a black/grey skirt or trousers, a white shirt, a tie in school colours, a blue jumper or cardigan and sensible black shoes. Please ensure your child’s clothing is clearly labelled with their name in order to prevent loss. Your child should not attend school wearing nail polish or jewellery (with the exception of stud earrings and a standard watch).

PE Info

 PE lessons will take place on Wednesday and Thursday each week In order to provide your
child with a full and varied curriculum, these lessons may take place either indoors or outdoors.
Therefore, your child will need kit appropriate to all weather types. Please provide your child
with plimsoles or trainers, jogging bottoms, shorts, a white or house coloured t shirt and a
jumper. Children should come to school in their P.E kits and remain in them for the entire of the
day on P.E days.
Children with shoulder length hair or longer will be asked to tie their hair up. If your child has
earrings, they will be required to remove them themselves for PE.
