Please ensure your child has appropriate clothing; this can be in the form of plain black tracksuit bottoms or plain black shorts and a plain white or red t-shirt.


If you are unsure about correct clothing please check the school uniform information that has been sent out. No jewellery is to be worn on PE days.

Planned Trips


Future trips are currently being planned and we will let you know as soon as possible through Class Dojo




Children need to read at home at least 3 times per week and log this on Boom Reader.

They will also be issued with spellings in a few weeks that they need to learn. In addition, there will also be some work set on Purple Mash for the children to complete at home and then submit.


You will be informed of work set through a message on Class Dojo, so please keep checking for any information.
