Homework Rota: 

Maths and English homework will be given out on a Wednesday.  Homework is due in on a Monday.

Spellings will be set on a Monday in class and be tested on the Friday - Spelling Shed will update automatically with the new spellings each Monday.


Library Time: Our library day is on a Monday this year. Books can be returned on any day but they must be properly scanned back in to avoid them still being signed out under your child's name.


Reading Diaries: Reading diaries are to be returned to school each Monday for checking, house points to be rewarded and they will then be sent home the same day. Reading diaries should be filled in 5 x a week.


P.E.: Please ensure that all PE kits are in school at all times. 


The class teachers will be on the church playground each day at 3.30pm for discussions.  However, if there is any aspect of your child's school experience that you would like to discuss in private, please email or call the school office to discuss further. 

Make sure to check out the pictures from the New Forest Trip on the Year 5/6 page! :)
