Class Timetable


We really appreciate your help with homework as the work set consolidates the learning that has happened during the week in school. Homework is given in a homework folder on Fridays and is due in the following Thursday to be checked. 

All children are expected to read for at least 5 minutes each day with an adult.

Children will receive spelling or phonics homework alternating each week. Spellings will incorporate learning for a test. Please encourage them to look at each word, cover it and practice writing it, then check it. Phonics will incorporate a particular aspect from their weekly phonic lessons.

Regular spelling practice of a few minutes each night will make a big difference to your childs ability. 

Children are set one piece of maths homework to consolidate the work we have been doing in class that week.

Barnaby Bear

Each Friday we will choose a Pupil of the week. This child will take home Barnaby Bear and his travelling diary for one week. Please help your child to record their week with Barnaby Bear in the diary. This can be a few sentences, photographs or pictures drawn by your child. Barnaby Bear will then need to be returned to school the following Friday for your child to share their experience with the whole class.

PE Days
Indoors Thursday

In Year 1 the children can bring their own morning snack to school with them. This must be a healthy snack of vegetables or fresh or dried fruit
