We are so happy to welcome you all back to school and are always here to help you get used to the new changes in and around school. We have a new way of working in order to keep everybody safe and well and begin our learning again. You will find all the key information you need on here and links to our class blog where there will be weekly updates and photos of our lessons.



Doors open at 8.30 for children with Surnames A - J and 8.40am  for surnames K - Z. We begin each morning by washing our hands and reading for enjoyment.

Once everyone is in class we will take the register and have an in- class assembly.

Then we will do fluency followed by Power maths followed by breaktime. After break we start our English lesson and finish with RAMP or Spelling before lunch. In the afternoons we do all of the other subjects as part of our such as Geography, History, Science, RE, RHE (relationships and Health education), ICT . Art/ DT and PE.


Reading: As well as reading regularly at school, you are expected to read as often as you can at home too (a minimum of three times a week). This might not always be your reading book but make sure your reading diaries are signed so reads can be counted for the Reading Challenge! You will also be entered into Frappe Friday!


Homework: Each week, your homework will be posted to Microsoft TEAM's on a Friday, this will be linked to our learning during the week. You should ensure your homework is submitted by the following Wednesday. Please let me know if you are having trouble with your homework or accessing it online before the date its due to be handed in.


Times Tables and Spellings: You will be given times tables and spellings to learn every week. It is important you practice these regularly so you are ready for your tests on Friday. A copy of your spellings can be found on Microsoft TEAM's.



PE: You will have two PE lessons per week and will need full PE kit including pants or leggings as PE will take place outside. Our PE Lessons are on a Monday with Miss Bishop and Friday with Mr Thomasson.


Brain Breaks

During the day we will stop regularly for brain breaks as we understand coming back to school is going to take time to get used to. Our brain breaks help us do a combination of things to prepare us to get back to our learning. These include wake up and shake up, meditation, cool downs, breathing exercises and mindful activities. We also have our 'Brain Bubble' where we can retreat to up to twice a day for 5 minutes time out. This will prepare us to carry on learning.
