Our Curriculum



Literacy and Maths

To help your child, please make sure they learn their spellings and read with an adult at least three times a week.

In Maths, you can help your child by helping them to learn their number bonds and times tables.

Don't forget to look at our Rainbow Maths page in the 'Maths' section so you can practise these at home, too.




Our topic for the Autumn term is ‘Healthy Us’.

Feel free to check with your child’s teacher if there are any places available.

Please listen to your child read at home - those who do often have the best imaginations when we write our own stories in class!


There must be 2 signatures in your child’s reading record before their home reading book will be changed.

A few reminders…


Children need to be at school at 8.50am every morning. A responsible adult needs to pick them up at 3.20pm, unless a consent form has been signed allowing children to go home alone.

There are sinks in all of the classrooms with drinking water – please make sure your child has a water bottle, labelled with their name, in school at all times.

Please make sure that your child has a coat with them at school, as the weather often changes during the day!



Children will have homework every week. They will have spellings to learn, times tables and they should be reading at least three times. In addition, they might have a Maths or English sheet to complete. At half term they will be given a black homework book. At the front of the book a list of tasks will be given with the dates they are due to be completed by. This book gives your child a chance to present their work creatively and neatly.

We really appreciate your help with encouraging your child to complete their homework – thank you!




Please return your child’s PE kit to school.

T-shirt, Shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms, pumps are required please.
