Physical Education

PE will be on Monday's each week. It is essential that the children have their PE kits in school each week. We will also be undertaking the Golden Mile daily to help improve our stamina and physical active levels. 


Weekly homework includes time to test yourself on TT Rockstars and ReadTheory, but your child also receives a spelling list and a half-termly Dojo Homework Project Challenge list. Remember, we will be awarding extra dojo points for each of the categories (1 dojo, 3 dojos, 5 dojos) if the item in question shows particular merit or effort with presentation. 


                               Times Tables Rockstars 
Your child has an account on Times-Table Rockstars and should be practicing regularly to increase their recall and rock speed. Training in the ‘Garage’ area of the site can also earn virtual coins and helps in gaining confidence. Here is the direct link to the website:


             Read Theory- Improving Reading Comprehension Online 
Your child also has an account on, an excellent website designed to support your child in developing reading skills by using extracts and quizzes. The site tracks your child's progress and then sets suitably challenging texts based on responses to questions. 




Our school is proud to be part of the Pobble community; our children have their work published online so that they can show off all of the hard work they do. Pobble can be accessed through the following link:

Snack money should be in a purse or wallet. Staff will not accept cash at doors. Children are responsible for looking after their own snack money.

Reading diaries/Reading books: Each child will have a Reading Diary and reading book for home reading. When you read at home with your child, do write in the diary as we can then reward your child for their efforts. The more times your child reads the more prizes they will receive!
