How to Help Your Child

  • Practise mental maths (little and often is best), including applying skills to word problems.
  • Encourage joined up writing that is consistent in size and sits on the line.
  • Try to read with your child everyday, this is the best way to build their confidence.
  • Keep up-to-date with communication from school via Class Dojo and the Newsletters.

General Information



Homework will be handed out on a Friday and collected on a Wednesday. This will usually be one reading book and one piece of either maths related work or topic related work.

Reading diaries:

Please read with your child every night (or as often as possible) for at least 10 minutes. You need to make a record in their reading diary at least once a week. Reading folders need to be sent in on a Wednesday in order for books to be changed. New reading books will then be sent home on Friday.  

PE days and required kit:

Due to current restrictions please could the children come to school on the following days wearing their P.E kits.

  • T-shirt (white or the colour of their sports  

        day groups) 

  • Shorts/trousers depending on the weather.
  • A jumper if it is cold

( At the moment P.E is just taking place outdoors so please make sure your child has suitable kit)



Lunches are prepared by the school kitchen staff, who will offer one hot and one cold option.  Lunch needs to be paid for in advance via the SQUID system.

Please discuss the dinner options with your child to ensure that there is something that they like. If you need an up to date menu, please ask.
