Reading: children are expected to read every week night and for this to be logged in their reading diaries with an adult signature.

Spellings: Will be put on the class page and added to spelling books every Friday and tested the following Friday. Spelling books will be checked every Friday to ensure practise has been completed.

Times tables tests will be every Friday - the children are aware of which times table they are focusing on.

Please ensure that your child’s reading journal is in school on a daily basis as this will be checked.

If your child has not had the opportunity to read with an adult at home, we will ensure this happens at school during play time.

Weekly Update 22.3.24


It's been a busy week in school as we complete our end of Spring term assessments, the children have worked hard to show all that they have learnt this year and from previous years. They are very familiar with the expectations and changes to timetable in assessment week and generally take it in their stride. In English they have been writing their instructions for how to make their protective phone cases which they will complete next week before the end of term. They have finished their geography topic about rivers and oceans by finding out about the water cycle. It was very exciting in school when our kites from World Book day appeared high above the children in the corridor and they have enjoyed walking to the hall spotting their own work on our kites and enjoying the different designs from the other classes.
