PE

Our PE sessions will be on Thursday afternoons and Friday mornings/afternoons. Children will need to come to school in their PE kits on those days.

 

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 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. Their homework will be issued via our online learning platform, Seesaw. If the login details have been misplaced, please contact your child’s class teacher for it to be reissued.

Each week, the children will be set pages from their CGP books 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 whole half term overview can be found on the spelling sheets on Seesaw.

In addition to this, we issue a termly projects guide that children are welcome to complete. Photos of these projects can be uploaded to Seesaw for teachers to see and share with the class, if you would like to.
