Home learning

Each week children are expected to read regularly, complete TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed games. 

Year 5/6 Spellings are given to the children each week and they will be tested on a Thursday. Please practise these weekly on SpellingShed and consider the spelling patterns and methods to help them remember them for the future. 

If you require any login details and passwords for home learning websites, then please contact me through Class Dojo.

Things to remember: 

  • Children will take part in sporting activities on Mondays and Fridays and should wear full school PE kit on 
    these days. We ask that children wear black joggers / shorts, a red or white t-shirt and trainers (NO 
    FOOTBALL KITS PLEASE). We will be participating in PE whatever the weather, so please ensure children bring a waterproof coat. Earrings must be removed or covered with tape during PE sessions.
  • Children will need to have a spare pair of trainers in school in order to fully participate in our ‘Daily Mile’ sessions and to use the field at lunchtime if its wet. These trainers can be an old pair as they will no doubt be getting muddy!
  •  Children should bring a water bottle into school and drink water in the classroom. No juice please.
  •  Swimming lessons will take place on Tuesdays. Please make sure your child has an appropriate swimming kit with them on this day.
