P.E days:

Please come to school in your P.E kit.

Home reading books:

Children should read a minimum of three times ( x 15 mins) a week at home.  When they have read, please sign their reading diary.  Children need to make sure that they bring their reading diary and reading book into school on a daily basis.  Children can earn extra dojo points for doing this along with the chance to win the playground box of goodies. 



Homework is set on a Wednesday and should be completed by the following Monday.


Spelling is set online through their Dojo portfolio. 

Maths homework is set using the online platform called Sumdog.

Remote Education:

If your child is isolating and absent from school because they are waiting for a COVID test result of a household member or themselves and they feel well, then please help them continue with their learning remotely at home as a short measure (2/3 days).  

To keep learning please can they access from home the following: 

  • EYFS play Minimash- play the games to develop their maths and literacy skills 
  • PurpleMash (KS1/2)- complete the 2Dos for English and maths skills practice 
  • Bug Club (All key stages) – read some of the texts and answer the questions about the book. If they are in KS2 ask them to write a short recount or make a book review too 
  • Sumdog (KS1/2) – play in the games section to revise key skills and check and complete maths tasks/homework set by their class teacher 
  • TTRockstars (Year 2 upwards) – play in the Garage Band to practise key times tables that have been set and play in the Studio Band to improve their Rockstar status 
  • Teach your Monster to Read (Phonics EYFS/KS1) – ensure your child logs onto their account each day to learn the sounds appropriate for their phonics phase 

For any longer isolation 10/14 days a different online learning platform (Microsoft Teams - which is currently being set up for every child) will be provided with more detailed content and lessons. More details to follow. 

If your child is unable to access the online platforms for any reason such as no internet connection or device, please contact school immediately where we will provide further support.
