Key Information


PE Days: Monday and Wednesday - Please remember to come to school dressed in your PE kit on these days.


Home reading: You will bring your home reading book home every night. Please ensure you bring your home read back to school everyday too! If you have read at home and had your diary signed you earn a reading raffle ticket. We also have a reader of the week for who is reading lots at home! More reading can win you a prize in our raffle draw each week!


Homework: Homework is set on a Wednesday and should be completed by the following Monday. We have maths and spelling homework each week. We also send our themed topic homework out, each half term and it is also available on the school website in the Children's section. Our Maths homework is set on Sumdogs each week. These are practice tasks to revise and consolidate maths learning in school. Our spelling homework is the 'Tic Tac toe' activity choices to practise spellings and then once practised, on PurpleMash there is a spelling quiz set in your 2Dos to complete each week. There is no need to return the 'Tic, Tac, toe' sheet to school now (for health and safety reasons).


Times tables: We encourage and reward you for practising your times tables as much as you can. We have the amazing online platform, TT Rockstars to practise times tables. The times tables in the 'Garage Band' are set specifically for you, so they should not be too easy or too hard!

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.
