PE

Our PE days will be Thursday and Friday afternoons, with occasional PE enrichment sessions on a Friday morning. Children should come to school in their PE kit on the days that they have PE.

 

Homework

During the academic year your child will have homework each week.  This is intended to help them consolidate the learning that takes place during lesson time. It is important then that you allow your children time at home to complete these tasks and where you can talk to your child to ensure they understand the importance of them.

Each week, the children will be set pages from their CGP books (these will be set via an announcement on Seesaw), which will need to be completed by the following Friday. The children can mark it themselves at home using the answers in the back of the book. Please could you then upload a photo of their marked work onto Seesaw for their teacher to see.

Spellings will be set weekly on a Friday and tested the following Wednesday. The spellings for each half term will be uploaded onto Seesaw.

We also have a high regard at school for reading books.  All children have the opportunity to take a reading book home so please ensure that your child reads as much as they can.  One way of ensuring this, is to get your child to read aloud to you at home as much as possible.
