Information about what we do:

Proud Cloud – the children help to choose the target for the Proud Cloud and the aim is to get everyone’s names up on the cloud by the end of the week

PE takes place in the hall on a Thursday afternoon during the Autumn Term. Please make sure they have clothes they can easily take off and put on!

Dinners – children choose their dinners using the interactive whiteboard every morning

Reading books are collected in every day and children who have read at home will have their book changed as needed. The children read every day as part of guided reading activities. They also read regularly with an adult. Reading at home is so important in helping the children to make progress and apply the skills they have learnt at school.

Spelling – Spelling rules are taught to the children every Friday. They will bring spellings using that rule home to learn, along with 3 common exception word spellings. The children will be tested on those spellings, and 2 more ‘surprise’ words using the spelling rule, the following Friday.

Marvellous Me! – We regularly use the Marvellous Me! App to keep you informed about some of the wonderful things the children have achieved during each week. Make sure you have a log in (available from the office) so that you can receive your child’s Marvellous Me! Certificates and photos.
