Important Information

  • Homework  will be given every Wednesday and it is due back in on the following Wednesday. Please make sure you sign your child's Reading Record when homework is completed. Why not encourage your child to take advantage of our homework club?

  • Spellings will be given each Wednesday to be learnt ready for the spelling test the following Wednesday. Try quizzing one another at home?

  • Reading Books Reading is amazing and can open up whole new worlds. It's so important that your child reads every single day. In Year 4/5 it is expected that children read between 15-20 minutes a day. Every child needs their reading book in school every day. Please sign your child's reading record each time they have read.

  • P.E Fireflies have PE on a Wednesday. Please make sure they have their named kit in school ready. This half term we also have swimming on a Friday. A reminder that no jewellery is to be worn, earrings must be removed or taped.
