  • Please bring Library Bus books back to change on a Wednesday. Books will be collected in at the end of each term so that they can all be scanned.


The children will have spellings at the start of each week. They will be stuck into Reading Records so that the children can access them at all times. There will be a test on these spellings every Friday. There will also be a maths activity on Education City and ongoing activities on Reading Eggs or Reading Eggspress. Please spend 20 minutes on each homework per week.

The login details for all of the children's accounts can be found inside their reading records but if these go missing, then please do not hesitate to contact the school office.

There will be no homework, spellings or reading books on the first or last week of every term.
