Your Class Teachers

This year you are lucky enough to have -- different teachers within your class.



PE will take place every Monday and Wednesday, when you will complete some dodgeball and health related fitness.

For PE sessions please bring the following:

- Black shorts, legins or jogging bottoms

- White t-shirt or polo shirt

- Black pumps or trainers

It is usually best to leave your child's PE kit in school for the half-term so that it is always available to use.


Children complete a star reading test every term which gives them a new 'ZPD'. This is a code which corresponds to a book suitable for the reading level of your child. It is important that your child brings their reading book into school each day. Once your child finishes their book, they will complete a quiz testing how well they have understood the book. Their word count is logged and if they get all of the questions right on the quiz, they join the '100 per cent club'!  It is also crucial that you listen to your child read each evening and ensure that you sign their reading record highlighting what they have read and how they performed.

Within this class reading records will be checked and books changed once quizzes are completed.


Homework will be set on a Tuesday through our online learning platform, SeeSaw. A link for which is placed below:

All homework should be completed by the following Monday and will be checked by your teacher on this day. Please make sure that if you are having difficulties with the homework, that you contact your class teacher with plenty of time so that they can assist your child in its completion. In addition, the school also run a homework club which can really help support those children that struggle completing their tasks independently.
