February 2020

This term our topic is Europe. Please see this terms topic web for more information about all of our learning in the different subjects this term.


Homework will be put on the school website on a Wednesday and needs to be returned the following Tuesday. (See ‘Homework’ page under ‘Classes’ on the school website)  Within the homework there will be an English, maths and topic based activity or a selection of each. Please complete as much as you can as this is an additional boost to your child’s learning.


Please continue to encourage your child to read at home. They can read independently or with your support and they may write their own comment in their reading diary.


PE lessons will take place on a Monday and Friday. Suitable trainers for outdoor PE are also needed.

ALL children MUST have a PE kit in school all week as at times it may be necessary to change the day.

PE kits MUST include plimsolls or trainers as some sessions are outside and even if indoors, games sessions such as football require the children to have plimsolls or trainers on.  Please also make sure that your child has a t-shirt, shorts and/or jogging bottoms and a jumper for PE along with hair tied back if your child has long hair.  If your child has earrings they must either put tape (which you should provide) over their earrings for the PE session or be able to take out their own earrings.

Morning routine

Registration is at 8.50am so your child should be in the classroom ready for us to start our day by this time.  I am available at the end of the school day or please make an appointment to see me via the office.

After school

Pupils will be brought to the playground. We will stand on the blue line in the playground, please could you wait until we are all lined up and then we will send your child to you.


If your child requires a school lunch please make sure that we have their lunch money in advance i.e. Monday for the week/number of days required.  If your child is having a packed lunch please make sure that it is well balanced as we encourage healthy eating as a school. Packed lunches should not contain sweets and fizzy drinks.


Please label all items of clothing.  Uniform must be worn unless prior notice is given.  Children are not allowed to wear trainers in school. Jewellery should be minimal. Nail varnish, make-up and tattoos are not allowed.
