PE- Please see the class page to find out which days your child will have PE. Please ensure jewellery is removed (including earrings) on these days. Please make sure your child’s kit is clearly labelled with their name.



Homework is set on Purple Mash and details can be found on the blog on the website. Spellings can be found on the blog and also in the back of your child’s reading record. Our spelling test will be on a Thursday.  

Please read with your child and sign their Reading Record at least three times per week. Children will receive a stamp on their bookmark too once they have completed this at home.  

Our topics this year are:

  • All About Us
  • Celebrations
  • Safari
  • Just Eat!

  • Scientists and Inventors




A few key points

  • Please send your child in with a water bottle every day, clearly labelled with their name.
  • Your child is welcome to bring a small healthy snack or 50p to purchase something from the tuck shop for the afternoon.
  • Please make sure all clothing is labelled (particularly coats & jumpers)



Any questions or concerns please email your child's teacher via Purple Mash
