General Class Information
Reading books are changed once a week, once your child has read their book at home. Please ensure that you comment in their reading record once they have read to you.

Homework is sent out each Friday and we kindly ask that it is returned the following Wednesday. Children who continually return incomplete homework will miss their break time to complete the activity. Children who return their homework on a Monday will receive a Mills Dojo as a reward. We greatly appreciate your continued support with this.

PE is twice a week on a Thursday. Your child will participate in a dance lesson and sports lesson every week. It is expected for them to have a full PE kit kept in school at all times.

Targets are sent home every half term. Please work through these targets with your child.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact us. You can make an appointment via the office or alternatively speak to us after school or via our Twitter pages.
