Maths Passports:

We are now regularly checking maths passports starting Friday 27th January so please make sure they are in every Friday.

The passports should be first dated by your child when they think they have achieved the goal, then by yourselves when you think they have achieved the goal and that is when we will check them in school and move them on. Try to complete at least one goal per week.




We have P.E sessions on both Wednesday and Thursday, please make sure your kit is in.


We change our reading books on a Tuesday and Friday, if you have finished your book before these times, find something to read at home and write it in your reading record.


We now have SPAG log ins for the children so they can do some at home when they get a chance, these will be stuck in their reading books.
