  • Please hear your child reading at home for at least 10-15 minutes a day and record this in the Reading Diary. It is important that your child brings the Reading Diary in every day as we encourage them to talk to us about the reading they do at home as well as in class. Your child must have completed the book and have the Reading Diary signed with a note informing staff of completion, in order for their book to be changed. It is important to check your child’s understanding of what they are reading, especially as they begin to read longer and more complex books. This can be done through discussing the book with your child and through questioning them about specific aspects.



  • Each week, as a part of their home learning, children will be expected to learn a set of spellings which they will be quizzed on throughout the week. These spellings are based on the Year Five and Six National Curriculum Spelling List. Children should be encouraged to look for and learn spelling patterns in these words and other words.



  • Our PE lessons are on Thursday and Friday at the moment. Children are expected to bring their full PE kits to school in these days, which have their names on. Please ensure that your child has the correct indoor and outdoor kit, as the weather gets colder and wetter children will need to be dressed appropriately as they will be in their kits all day. Earrings must be taken out before PE lessons.


Home Learning

  • Please encourage your child to complete each week one activity from our Home Learning menu on Teams. Abacus tasks will be allocated each Thursday with a week time for completion. Please ask for a paper copy if you cannot access it at times. Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize are carry on providing lessons covering the National Curriculum.
