Our PE days are Monday and Tuesday one of these lessons will be outside, please ensure that children have appropriate clothing to wear as it is cold! Please remind children to remove any jewellery i.e. earrings or bracelets before school if they are unable to remove them themselves. 

Homework will be set on Thursday and is due back on Wednesday.

For homework this term the children will be given weekly homework ranging from Maths, English or Topic. The children all have the Year 5 and 6 Spellings in their homework books, although we are practising these in class, the children need to be continuously practising them at home too.
