Our Day

Our day begins with Basic skills in the morning, where we either learn spellings, practise our mental maths, or revise our times tables. Sometimes we have these sessions with different teachers, depending on what level we are working at.

  • We have an assembly most days, and also have our Maths, Science, Literacy, Topic, RE and Music lessons in the morning, as well as Guided Reading.
  • In the afternoons we have, Art, Handwriting, Spanish and PE/Games lessons.

 

Reading

Maths

Home Learning

Homework is given out on a Friday. Children will get a piece of Literacy or Maths homework, as well as spellings to learn. If children get stuck with their homework, they are asked to bring it into school before Friday, so an adult can go through it with them.

Homework is collected in on a Friday, although children are welcome to return their homework before this.

A spelling test is done on a Monday morning.

All children do times tables tests on a Thursday morning.

Daily reading should also be undertaken with your child and a brief note written in their home reading book should be written so communication about your child can be easily passed on. Children may change their reading book whenever necessary. Reading records are monitored once a week to check whether children are reading at home.

Spellings are given out each Monday to be practiced for the following Monday.  Please support your child by helping them learn these spellings.
