Sports Day

Sent: 05 May 2017 15:16

Dear parents,
Please accept my apologies for any confusion and inconvenience resulting from the change in date to sports day.
The original date we had fixed for sports day clashed with a number of other inter-schools sports fixtures for some of our KS2 children. We have only recently been notified of these fixture dates, and after some debate it felt contradictory for KS2 children to miss out on opportunities to compete in local fixtures due to the timing of our sports day.
We aim to set the date for sports day as well in advance as possible as we know sports day is a popular and well attended family occasion. We are also aware that parents like to book time off work to support the day. We are now awaiting a few more fixture dates to avoid any further clashes and will confirm the new date to you as soon as possible.
Kind regards,
Briony Robertson

Homework Expectations-Please see the front of Learning Logs


Every week the Learning Log homework will be stuck into your child's Learning Log. On there will be Maths, English and Topic work,  We also ask that you practise spellings with your children from their Read Write Inc. spelling log books, which should go home every night and then come back to school the following morning.


Topic homework will be shared with the class. Completed homework will be shared with the class or marked in the way highlighted on the learning log page. We will go through the maths and English homework during the maths and English lesson on the due date and any questions can be asked then. It is really important that the homework is completed and in class on the due date to ensure we can go through it with the work in front of the children so that we can help with any questions.


Please make sure all work goes into the Learning Log and is stuck down. If your child has made a large piece, such as a model, that won't stick into the Learning Log, please leave a space and we will put a photo of the work there instead.
