General Information 


Our PE day is Friday (Children to come into school in kit)


Reading: Your child will be heard reading in school once a fortnight.

We ask that your child is heard reading 3 times a week or more at home. Every Monday the children can change their books and their partnership books will be checked. Your child will then receive a raffle ticket if they have read 3 times or more which goes into the reading raffle once every half term.


Phonics: Please ensure that your child completes their phonics homework sheet which will be given each week in their phonics folder. These need to be returned on the Monday of the following week. At the back of your child’s partnership book are the common exception words for their year group. Your child can practise reading and writing these at home.


Maths: If children want to practise their numbers skills we have a subscription to Numbots. A login can be found at the front of their partnership book.


Interventions: If your child receives an intervention then this will be recorded in the front of their partnership book. If you would like to see what intervention your child is receiving, please have a look at the ‘Intervention Groups’ page.
