Start and finish times

 Start – 8:45    We do quick maths every morning at 8.45 so please be on time.  Please try and order your child's lunch at home.  Phonics groups start at 9am. 

Finish – 3:15


Reading and home learning expectations


Children will have a reading book which is closely linked to their phonics group.  Please read with your child as often as possible at home and sign their diary x3 week.  The children earn stickers and awards for reading at home.  Children will read with an adult in school as often as possible, for some children this may be every day.  Each child has a set day to read and change their book but they should bring it in every day!! 

Your child’s progress in reading will be helped hugely by reading at home.  This will form part of their homework, reading at least 5 minutes each night with an adult is the goal!


Children can change their library books every Thursday in school.  Please remind them to have it in their bags on Thursday. 


PE kits


PE is on a  Tuesday and Wednesday. 

Children need to wear a white t.shirt, black shorts and pumps/trainers. 

Please make sure they have their kit.  It is easier just to leave it iN school in a drawstring bag, on their peg.  They can take it home each half term to be washed.

Links to Support Learning

Maths loads of good games,  We use hit the button a lot in class.  lots of games to explore and resources.  This is probably best on a laptop, I haven't tried it on a phone. 

Times Tables Rock Stars – Times Tables Rock Stars (  I will give log in details out for this by the end of Sept. 

White Rose app (this is really good!) 



We don't use as many apps/games for English in class.  There are games on topmarks and ict games like for maths. 

Science  You can select the current topic for Science, watch a video and complete a quiz. 



I often keep tasks open so that the children can access them at home too.
