We pride ourselves on our uniform. Children should all come to school wearing full school uniform: a grey blazer, a blue and gold tie, black, white or grey socks, flat, black shoes with a strap or laces, black or grey trousers/skirt and a white shirt or blouse. P.E. kit should be brought into school on Monday and is taken home on Fridays. Children should have a white P.E. top, shorts and trainers or plimsolls.
Home School Diaries
These are used to communicate between parents and teachers. Please write a note when your child has read and comment on their understanding of the text. We really appreciate as much reading as you are able to do with your child. When they have read, please ask them questions about what they have read to make sure they understand the text.
Spellings will be given out each week on a Monday and children will be tested on these the following Monday. You will find your child’s spellings in their Home School Diary that they will stick in each week. We ask that children practise their times tables a minimum of 3 times a week and that children are listened to read, each day, for a minimum of 10 minutes. Maths, Reading and SPaG homework will be set as appropriate.
