Attendance matters

Each week we aim to achieve over 95% attendance. Let's make a really big effort to come to school every day so we can achieve this! 



Children are expected to read daily at home. Children will be issued with reading books along with a reading record and these must be brought in to school every day. Please ensure that when your child reads at home that you sign their reading record to let their teacher know. We give out bronze, silver and gold awards for reading during assemblies so try and aim for all three every term! 



Homework tasks are sent home every Friday and due to be completed and returned back to school every Wednesday. These tasks will then be marked and returned to the children. 



Class 8's weekly spelling test is on a Friday. A new list of spellings to practice will be given to take home every week.



In Class 8, PE lessons take place on Tuesday and Thursday every week. Please make sure that PE kits (including trainers/pumps) are in school on this day.



In Class 8, children will be going swimming every Wednesday from February to the end of July. Please make sure children have their swimming kit (swimsuit/shorts, a towel and a bag) on this day.
