Vanessa comes to school every Thursday to teach French. 


Our PE days are Tuesday and Wednesday. On these days, children should come to school wearing the school PE kit and wearing trainers. As the weather gets colder, please make sure that children have warm layers as outdoor PE will go ahead whenever possible. 


We have visits every other week from Miss Lelliot, Head of Dance at Warden Park Secondary Academy, who teaches the class dance.

Homework will be set on a Thursday and is due in on the following Tuesday. The homework sheet will be posted on Seesaw and children can complete the work online or in their orange homework books. Please support your child in ensuring that the standard of presentation matches that which is encouraged in class. 


Children should be reading for a minimum of 10 minutes every day. Please speak to the class teacher if your child would like help finding their next book. We are happy for books to come home from school, however we would be very grateful if they could be returned promptly once they are finished.
