Weekly Routine



Homework will consist of reading 5 times a week with an adult, practising your times tables and your spellings.  See below for further details. 



We will expect you to read 5 times a week with an adult at home and record it in your reading record.  Your reading records will be checked by the adults in class each week and when 5 reads have been recording with an adult at home, you will be entered into the weekly class reading raffle for a chance at winning reading prize. 



Each Friday, you will be given your weekly spellings to practice at home in your homework books. The homework books are expected back in on a Wednesday. The spellings will follow your weekly phonics work and will relate to the sounds that you have learnt in class. You will be expected to write them everyday. You will be tested once a week on the spellings you have learnt.


Times Tables 

Times Tables will be set each Friday via Times Table Rock Stars for their weekly homework.  Staff are able to monitor your progress via the website.  


Water Bottles

Please ensure that you bring a clean water bottle to school each day which is clearly marked with your name.  We have cold water towers around school for you to refill your water bottle throughout the day. 



Please see the weekly class time table below for your twice weekly PE slots.  

PE kit will need to be kept in school for the whole week, should it be needed for other reasons, and taken home to be washed over the weekend.  Please ensure that you bring your kit to school with you every Monday.  


Forest School

Forest School takes place in all weathers and all seasons. Children and adults must be dressed appropriately as 'there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing!'

You are encouraged to explore and investigate; you will need clothes that enable you do do this.  As a parent said, 'You can wash away the mud, but you can't wash away the experience.' 

Forest School Clothing:

  • Jogging bottoms
  • Sweatshirt
  • Wellies
  • Water proof trousers
  • Water proof jacket

Remember - these items will get muddy!
