It would be useful if the children reflected on their experience of prayer and on how Jesus is present to them.



Please ensure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.

Please label ALL clothing and belongings.


Physical Education (PE)

Our P.E day is Thursday, please ensure your child comes in to school on Thursday wearing their PE Kit. The PE kit includes black shorts, a white T-shirt and a pair of trainers. As PE lessons will largely be held outside, your child may need something warmer (eg track suit) in cooler weather.For health and safety reasons, children cannot wear jewellery for PE, so all children need to either be able to remove their earrings or they should be removed in the morning before school.



Homework will be sent out on Friday and returned by the following Thursday. Homework will be sent out by using Google Classrooms. If your child does not know their login, please contact the school office.


Homework is used to consolidate your child’s learning from that week. Please allow and encourage your child to attempt their homework independently before supporting them if required.


Times Tables

Children are expected to know all of their tables up to 12 x 12 and associated division facts by the end of Year 4. Please ensure that the children keep their recall skills sharp.  Every child should have a login to Times Tables Rockstars. Please encourage them to access this resource often.



The children are expected to read independently at home on a regular basis (15 minutes per night). They should keep a record in their diary of what they have read. Please listen to them read out loud once a week and record this in their diary. Discuss any vocabulary that they are not sure of.



Children need to be able to read and spell all of the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 spellings. They also need to learn any spelling patterns and rules that are taught in class and then sent home.
