Spellings distributed Monday for test on the following Monday. English grammar and punctuation Monday for Thursday. Maths Thursday for Monday. Times tables and reading should occur on a daily basis to support your child.


Parental Involvement

We welcome the support of parents both at home and in school and parent volunteers for one to one reading support in school would be greatly appreciated. Helping your child with homework, reading and times tables will increase their confidence in school and help consolidate what they have learnt. We would love for you to join us in school at our special events.
