Children are expected to wear their PE kit to school on these days:


Between 8:20am-8:40am, key stage one staff will offer pre-teach sessions to children in Year 1 and 2. Each staff member will be focusing on a different area of the curriculum. For example; we are currently offering sessions on speed sounds and Maths. During these sessions we will be teaching the children the concepts and skills prior to a lesson. The idea is to give the student a 'preview' of the learning that will allow them to put their knowledge to work during the lesson. Pre-teaching can provide students with more knowledge and confidence when approaching a new topic. This can help to increase engagement and reduce frustration. Your child will receive a letter if they have been invited to these sessions.


We hope that you will be able to hear or read to your child for at least 10 minutes a day.  All other homework will be set on Satchel One. Each week the children will need to complete; 

  • A Diagnostic Questions Quiz  

  • Times Tables Rock Stars 

  • Numbots  

  • Spelling Zone 

Project homework will also be set on Satchel One. There will be three tasks to complete over the term. You can bring your homework into school on Friday's. We will showcase homework each Friday and will return your brilliant work or the children can choose to put it on display in our classroom. We can't wait to see your awesome home learning.  

Please use the code below to access the diagnostic questions activities. The children need to create their own log in and then use their Maths group teacher code, which may be a different adult to their class teacher. The website link is: https://diagnosticquestions.com/
