We are assisted by Mrs Millington and Mrs Guy.
Some important routines:
PE lessons are Monday and Thursday.
Our books are changed on Mondays, although we should bring them in every day ready to read with an adult. We should read at home every night for at least 10 minutes and record it in our reading record.
Maths homework is sent home once a week and returned by Wednesday. We all have access to Mymaths.co.uk to complete extra maths learning and games.
Spellings are sent home and tested on a Friday.
