Homework is set on Fridays and is due in on the following Wednesday. We will let your children know what pages have been set each week for homework and we will also publish the pages on the school bulletin. The homework is work booklet based. Your child will be given a set of workbooks at the beginning of the year. It is important that the children complete their homework and hand it in on time.


Our PE day is Thursday with all three classes participating with either Mr Stevens or Mrs Berlinski. 

We are asking that you send your child in on Thursday, already in their PE kit. If your child is doing football please make sure they have a change of shoes and spare socks in case they get wet during the lesson. Your child can obviously change into their boots in school.

Swimming will take place in the summer term.

Each class now has an individual timetable (due to each class doing different activities on different days during the week) so please refer to the downloads section of this page for further information on each particular class.
