Useful Information

Y6 PE day is a Monday while Y5 PE day is a Thursday. Children are only permitted to wear a watch and small studs in their ears in school for safety reasons, and these items must be removed during a PE lesson. Children are very welcome to attend school in their outdoor PE kits on their PE days. This year, the children will be learning how to play the guitar in music every other Tuesday while art will be taught in the art studio on a Wednesday for Y5 pupils and a Friday for Y6 pupils. This term, we intend to take the Y6 pupils to Eden Camp to enhance their understanding of the events of WWII. Y5 pupils will take part in a geographical fieldtrip to develop and extend their knowledge of local rivers.




Children will be provided with their yellow record and AR book on a Monday. The record and book must be handed back in on a Friday with a quiz score recorded inside. Children will be encouraged to select a reading book for pleasure from the library loan section of our library or they will be welcome to read a book from home over the weekend. Homework will be posted on Seesaw every Friday and must be submitted by the following Thursday. Children will receive their weekly spellings to learn via Seesaw on a Monday ready for Friday’s spelling test. Homework for other subjects may be given from time to time if it is deemed appropriate, and children will always be more than welcome to investigate or research subject areas of great interest to them personally across the curriculum at any time.
