Useful Information

Children are to come to school wearing their PE kits. Please ensure that your child has appropriate clothing and footwear for the weather. Our school PE kit consists of black shorts or black tracksuit bottoms, white T-shirt, trainers for outside. A sweatshirt can also be worn in colder months.

 Hair should be tied back and no jewellery should be worn. 


Long Term Plan

Termly Overview



Children are allocated books suitable to their ability on Oxford Ready Buddy (their login is in their Reading Record). Children also have a ‘Reading for Pleasure’ book which they choose themselves from the class library. This is to share at home and it is expected that good care is taken of the book. Lost or damaged books will incur a like-for-like replacement cost.

All of our children are expected to read at home at least four times per week with an adult recording their reading in the child’s Reading Record book. Reading Records will be checked every Friday by staff in your child’s class. Children who have met the expectation of reading at least four times per week will be rewarded with 5 DoJo points.

Reading is the most powerful gift we can give a child: it puts stardust in their imaginations


We will be sharing some great class texts this year including:



  • Children should practise and learn their spellings which are set each week. School have provided exercise books to keep at home to help with this. 


  • Using the Times Tables Rock Stars app, children should complete sessions set weekly by their teacher (60 minutes a week).
