  •  If your child has pierced ears, it would be much appreciated if you could remove their earrings on each morning of P.E.  Please note that staff are not able to remove them or cover them, so this will result in your child not taking part in our P.E. lesson and an alternative task will be provided for the child, this is due to health and safety reasons.  Long hair must be tied back.

Homework

Homework – will be given out each Wednesday and MUST be completed and returned by the following Wednesday (including spellings to learn for a test each week) as this gives the children enough time to see their class teacher if they are struggling. The purpose of this work is to consolidate the learning from class and to prepare them for more intensive homework at high school. It is therefore extremely important that this work is completed. Any children who fail to bring/complete their homework will have to complete it during their playtime. If a child does not complete their homework three times in a half-term a letter will go home and they will not be able to attend film club or other school treats.
