Outdoor learning

This half term we are very lucky as we have Simon helping us with outdoor learning. This is not Bushcraft, it is to enhance their DT and Science skills and learning. The children will wear their school uniform however we ask that they have warm tracksuit bottoms (separate to their PE ones please incase they get muddy) and warm trainers/wellies/shoes for outdoors.

5G Wednesday am

Times Tables

The children will be tested on their times tables each week. 

Each child will have a times table book that they bring home weekly to help them practise. Please ask your child to complete the columns throughout the week and return the book on Friday to be checked and signed by the class teacher.



Well done for all your effort with reading! Every Friday the class teacher will sign the reading diary so please ensure your child has their reading diary with them. 

We now need to quarantine books when they are returned to school so please remind your child to put their book into the box provided in their classroom.



Every Thursday, we will use common exception words to set the spellings for the children. They will then have one week to learn these spellings, before being tested the following Thursday. 



Mathletics homework is set every Thursday and the children should complete this by the following Thursday.


Login Details

Every child has their own Mathletics and Times Table Rock Stars login details. We have also provided you with the login details for Seesaw. If you cannot find these details, then please contact the school office. We encourage the children to use Mathletics and TTRS as often as they can.



Please continue to check Seesaw regularly for and posts or messages. 




Thank you for your time and continued support.
