General Information


Children will get Maths or English homework every week. This will be sent home on a Wednesday and must be brought back on the following Monday. Children will also bring their spellings home to learn on a weekly basis. As we aim to prepare children for their secondary education, we insist homework is always brought to school on time and presented neatly. If children are unable to do work at home then they may attend homework club.


A spelling test takes place every Friday. New spellings will then be sent home that day for the children to learn. Children will also create sentences using words from their spelling list.


Full PE kit should be in every day. PE day is Thursday.
