Information and Class Routines for Parents


All pupils should bring their reading book and reading record to school every day. Pupils should practise their reading every night for at least 10 minutes supported by an adult. We would really appreciate parents/carers signing their child’s reading record and we encourage parents to make comments about their child’s reading.


Weekly spellings are based on spelling rules and statutory words from the New Curriculum. Spellings to learn and practise will be given every Friday and pupils will be tested on a Thursday the following week. We have introduced across school a ‘Word of the Day’ activity. We ask parents to question and discuss this with their child/children. Find out its definition, the context it would be used in and practise putting it into a sentence where possible. Homework should be returned by a Thursday. 


Number bonds and multiplication tables should be practised regularly. It is important that pupils are fluent in their number bonds and multiplication tables to enable them to efficiently carry out many other mathematical strategies. Please encourage your child/children to practise these every week and support them in the process.



Pupils have PE on Tuesdays and Thursdays and need to make sure all of their kit is in school. A pair of shorts, a T shirt and gym shoes. Trainers can be worn for outdoor PE. Please remember to remove earrings on PE days




A healthy snack is available at playtime for all pupils, for a fee of 20p.
