Just a note for parents and carers...
It is with great pleasure that I wish you all a happy 2018/2019 academic year, and express my delight in being able to teach your children. Over the next eleven months, we will be doing all that we can to ensure your children develop in all curriculum areas, as well as focusing on further developing personal, social and emotional skills. I look forward to working closely with families to best support the learning and development of your children, and thank you for your commitment to encouraging regular reading, extra home learning and completion of all homework set.
As always, if you have any concerns, or simply would like a chat about your child's learning, please do not hesitate to make an appointment via the School Office, where we can arrange a mutually convenient time to meet.
I look forward to what's set to be a year of fun, activity and adventure.

Homework Schedule - Spring Term
It is important children in Upper Key Stage 2 (Y5 and Y6) begin to develop independence when organising their home learning time, including all homework tasks and additional class preparation.
Homework is due in school as follows:
Monday - Maths/English Homework, as distributed throughout the week
Friday - CGP English & Maths & Weekly Spellings
* Please see our 'Weekly Spellings' page for further guidance on weekly word lists & available support resources.
* Multiplication Tables and related division facts should be practised regularly. Children should revise facts for at least 5 minutes every night. Use TimesTablesRockstars to help (see Curriculum Support>Maths>TimesTables for link and guidance). (It is an expectation of the Year 4 curriculum that children know all multiplication tables up to 12 x 12)
* Reading homework will be completed regularly and timing will be variable, in line with progress through our class novels. Children should read every night, for no less than 15 minutes, aiming to increase fluency, speed and comprehension. (Don't underestimate how much children in Years 5 & 6 enjoy reading with an adult - either reading or being listened to!)
