The children will receive new spellings each week and will be tested the following Monday. 

 Practising their spellings can be written in their home learning diary to gain even more merits. If your child has lost their spellings, please don't hesitate to ask for a spare copy.




We have indoor PE on a Monday afternoon  and Outdoor PE on a Friday afternoon.

Please ensure that your child has correct PE kit on those days and that it is named.
