Key Information for Each Year Group

We have listed the key information and dates to help you with the organisation of the school week at home.

Reception - PE kit should be in school at all times as the days we have PE changes from week to week. Homework will be sent out on a Thursday, please read with your child every day. Could children please have a suitable coat and wellies in school every day as we access the outside area in all weathers!

Year 1 - PE Kit should be in school from Monday through to Friday please.  Children are expected to read 5 times a week. Please record when they have read to you in their homework books and the children will change their book when they have mastered the text. Library books will be changed once a week on a Wednesday. Children will also be given spellings to learn each week.

Year 2 - Please ensure that your child has their (indoor and outdoor) PE kit in school at all times as we may have PE lessons at any time. Homework will be set on a Friday to be completed by the following Friday. Spelling tests and times tables tests will also be on a Friday. In addition to this, there may be a project linked to the class theme for the children to complete. Please read with your child every day or let them read silently and then talk to them about their reading.

Year 3 - Year 3 PE Kit should be in school all week please, as PE lessons can happen at any time. Homework, spelling and times tables, including TT Rockstars, will be set on a Friday for return the following Friday.  Spelling tests are also on Fridays. We will also set a half-termly homework project. We encourage the children to read to an adult each day which should be recorded in their homework book. Alternatively, your child could read silently and you could then talk to them about their text.

Year 4 - P.E. Kit should be in school from Monday through to Friday please, this should include suitable outdoor sports clothes. Spellings are given out on Friday, and a test will take place the following Friday. MyMaths homework is available online at any time. Reading should at least 5 times a week with an adult - this could be reading aloud or reading silently and then talking about the text. When children complete an Accelerated Reader quiz they will be rewarded with Dojos. Please practise times tables at least 5 times per week for a weekly times table test. Reading, spellings and times tables are the daily homework, with English and Maths homework weekly.

Year 5 - PE kits should be in school all week please, as the times of PE lessons can vary. 
Spelling homework is set each Friday to be tested the following Friday. There will also be some MyMaths work which can be completed online either at home or at school during lunchtime. The children must read daily and talk about their texts please. English and Maths homework will also be given out on a Friday.

Year 6 - The children will have weekly homework set. MyMaths and Grammarbug are always available to be completed online for additional support.  If access to a computer is tricky, the children are able to use the ICT suite at lunchtime every day.  The children need to continue with their daily reading (recorded in their Homework Books) and times tables practice and they will be completing accelerated reader quizzes in school when they finish each book.  Please come to school prepared with a black pen and pencil, and ensure your P.E. kit is in school all week. The children will have weekly homework set in arithmetic, reading comprehension and spellings & grammar. Homework is set on Thursday for the following Thursday.
