Important Information

School Times

School starts at 8:45am

Children start with morning arithmetic and spelling practice, which is vital for the children to practice, so please ensure the children are on time.


 PE is on a Monday afternoon.

Children can come to school in their PE kit, or can change at school. For more detail on the school uniform, please click - Uniform


Spellings are given out on a Tuesday and tested on a Monday morning. Please practice these with your children as it will help them build their skills as writers and build their confidence.


It is important to keep hydrated throughout the school day so please bring a bottle of water to school with your name on it every day.  The children can fill these up at the tap as needed.


It is crucial that your child reads every night at home with an adult who asks them questions. While the children are now mostly able to read without help, questions will help them develop their comprehension skills.

Times Tables

The children will be given TT Rockstars logins- most got these in Year Two. They should be encouraged to play often at home.
