The Curriculum Newsletter contains lots of information about what the children will be learning this term. Our PE days will be Monday and Wednesday.


Please ensure that your child reads at least three times a week and that you signed their reading records each time. Homework will continue to be set on a Wednesday and will be due in on the following Monday. It is very important that children complete their weekly Mathletics activities as part of their homework.
