Important information

  • Spellings go out on a Monday and are tested on a Friday.  
  • Children must come to school everyday equipped with their reading book (from our library with appropriate book band) and reading diary. We endeavour to check these every other day. It is critical for your child's development and learning that they read 4 times a week, this is our target and we have some incentives to keep us going!
  • Our PE days are Monday, Wednesday and Friday, however please ensure your child brings their PE kits every day in case of last minute changes. 
  • The school office is "cashless" and will therefore only be accepting payments via "Parentpay". For more information please visit the "Parentpay" page of our website or contact the school office.
  • Homework grids go out at the beginning of term, this includes many tasks based on our topic and involve a range of activities. We love to celebrate homework on a Tuesday and Friday. 
  • During Summer term, there will be a piece of SPaG/Reading/Arithmetic homework which will go out every Monday - it is expected that this is returned the following Monday. Those children who have not got it with them on Monday will have to complete during their break that day. 
  • For any other information or if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to come and speak to Miss Springhall or Mrs Boaler. 


Each half term we will send out a class newsletter with lots of information regarding our learning, exciting dates and things to remember. A copy will also be available to download below. 

Look back with pride and forward with confidence
