Our Class Timetable


Picture 1



Homework is set every Friday to be returned by the following Tuesday.  Children are given a piece of English and a piece of Maths work to consolidate their learning in class.  At times there may be homework related to other aspects of the curriculum.  There will also be some research topics to find out about at different times of the year.  Please support your child with their homework and encourage them to try their best.  Thank you!

Reading Olympics


As part of our Reading Olympics we encourage children to read daily at home.  Please support your child to read on a daily basis and sign their Reading Journals.  We aim to hear all of the children read in class through individual and guided reading.

Creative Curriculum


Our topics enable us to develop and apply knowledge and skills in different areas of the curriculum, such as history, geography and art.  These lessons take place during the afternoon.  Where possible, we go on educational visits or invite visitors in, so that we develop our learning and understanding more.  These are the topics that we will be covering each half-term.
