Key Information:


Drop off is from 8:50 - 9:00 via car park entrance. The children will be met by their teacher on the playground ready to take them into class.

Please limit items the children bring in to school.  They should only need to bring a coat and a water bottle (and a packed lunch if required). Each child will receive a pencil case which should cater for their needs. If the children wish to bring in some colouring pencils then these must remain in school. We would encourage only small packs so that they may be incorporated into their school pencil case.  


Our PE days are Monday(outdoor) and Wednesday(indoor). PE kit is to be worn to school on these days. PE kit consists of black shorts or joggers, a house coloured tee shirt (or polo shirt) and trainers. 


Home Learning Expectations:


Children should be reading at home for a minimum of 10 minutes every day as this equates to one year's extra progress.

Continued practise of their times tables has a huge impact on their confidence and fluency in Maths. They could use TTRockstars (Login details can be found in the front of their reading records) or quick fire questions. 


We still have our topic based project home learning ideas and if these are completed, please share the outcomes on ClassDojo where we will be able to share them with the whole class. 

Term 1 - Pharaohs:

We are starting the year with a history based topic focusing on Ancient Egypt. Take a look at the knowledge organiser for an overview of what we will be covering.

Home Learning:

There is a selection of home learning activities covering a range of skills. As stated above, please share the outcomes on ClassDojo where we will be able to share and celebrate them with the whole class.
