Please aim to do a minimum of 15 minutes of reading every school day. 

For children learning in school, reading books will be sent home on a Monday and need to be returned on a Friday. It is expected that children read every night and an adult signs their Reading Journal to show what has been read each night. We are very grateful for your support with this. 


Homework is set on a Friday and needs to be returned, completed by the following Friday.

Long Term Plan- Updates

In light of the new school closures, our Long Term Plan may be subject to change as some topics are more easily taught remotely than others. This may mean that the order of some topics is swapped around. You will be kept informed of what is currently being taught each half term in the 'Home Learning Overview' above.
