Class Information

Our PE days are Thursday and Friday. We ask that children wear PE kit to school and do not need to change throughout the day.

Outdoor education will rotate on a fortnightly basis, Wednesday PM.

Maths with Parents

To supplement the work we are currently doing in class, additional activities will be set on Maths with Parents.

English – Bedrock Vocabulary – Learning

Bedrock learning – Your child should have received an email with their log in details. If your child has not received these, please contact Mr. Hayden on the email at the top of the page. This will form children’s English homework this term.


Please aim to complete atleast one lesson / reading comprehension task a week.

Bedrock learning is a great assessment tool which identifies vocabulary that your child is secure with, developing and does not know. Once the initial assessment is complete, your child can access a series of lessons. Please note that lessons should not be rushed through and completed all in one go. If children are completing too many lessons in quick concession, they will be made to wait 24 hours before accessing the next lesson in the sequence.

Headstart spellings: Children have been sent home with a full pack. If they misplace their spellings, please contact Mr Hayden on the email above or leave a note in their planners. Thank you.

Parents can further support their children with their reading through:

Predicting – What do they think this text is about?

Clarify – What new vocabulary have they experienced? Meaning?

Question – What would they still like to know?

Summary – In their words, what is the text about?

Headstart spellings to continue as normal following the Headstart Spelling guide.
