 English grammar and punctuation Thursday for Thursday. Maths Thursday for Thursday. Times tables and reading should occur on a daily basis to support your child and access to Edshet should be on a weekly basis.


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.


​P.E. Days

P.E. days are subject to change. Please make sure your child always has their kit in school. Kits will be sent home at half term for a wash!
