Homework: Homework grids will be sent out each term. As always, these are only a rough guide. If your child is inpired to do something else related to our learning, this is always welcome. Your child will have weekly spellings to learn. They can choose to do this however they wish but they do have a spellings menu to help them. 


Your child must have a full PE kit in school at all times please. Trainers can also be worn instead of plimsolls. 

If there are any questions or queries please do not hesitate to ask.

Yours faithfully

Mrs Buchanan
