We aim for all pupils to believe in themselves.....and reach for the stars!
PE Days 2021 - 2022
PE this term will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. However it is important that your child has their PE kit in school everyday as there may be times when we need to change our timetable.
PE kit is part of our school uniform and should include:
Homework will focus on reading, spellings and times tables as these are key areas which underpin so many other areas of learning.
Spellings - these will be sent home on a Monday for testing the following Friday.
Reading - children must read to an adult at least 4 x each week and record this in their reading diaries. We will check diaries and award house points to recognise their efforts.
Times Tables - children should aim to complete 5 minutes on Times Tables Rock Stars at least 4 x each week. This will really help with improving their quick recall skills.

2nd April 2020
Poetry Challenge - This is a seascape which hangs at the top of my stairs. I love it because it is a painting of one of my FAVOURITE PLACES to go . I wonder how many of you can guess where it is? I would love you to write me a poem about this painting. It could be an acrostic poem (which spells a word or phrase, vertically down the page), it could be a descriptive poem, using similes ( eg as swift as an eagle) and alliteration (eg the shells settle on the shingles of the shore) or, for those who want to make it rhyme, it could be a poem using rhyming couplets (where 2 lines of your poem rhyme).
Have a go ! Send me your wonderful, seascape poems to -
firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday 19th April and I will announce our poets of the week ! Don't forget to guess where it is
As more exciting resources are made available for free, I will keep updating our class page.
The link below has some Fab, Fun Football activities - see the Football Fun Activity Pack, along with a super Poetry Challenge for you budding poets.
