Class and Curriculum Information

Hello and welcome to our class curriculum page. Here you will find useful information about the things your child is learning at school. 

Important information: 

- Please can your child bring in their water bottle and a coat every day. 

- PE is on a Wednesday. Your child can come to school in the new relaxed dress code every day, however you may chose to only do this on a Wednesday. This means that your child does not have to change into PE kit. 

-Homework will be set on Classdojo every Monday and Friday. This will include spellings, reading, maths and some writing work. 

- You may message me with questions on Classdojo. I will respond to these on a Monday and Friday. 

- Your child still has access to Times Tables Rockstars which really helps them to improve their fluency in multiplication and division.  They can also access Spelling Shed where they can play games which involve the spellings they need to learn each week.
