Important Information:

P.E days for 3G are Tuesdays. Please ensure that your children have the correct P.E kit in school all week so they are able to fully take part. 


New spellings will be given out every Friday and will be written into the children's organisers. Children will be tested on their spellings the following Friday morning. 


Please ensure that the bottom page of your child's organiser is signed each week by Friday. 


It is very important to hear your child read on a regular basis, therefore the school asks that an adult hears each child read at least 3 times a week. Please make sure if you hear your child read, you record it in their organiser as children will not be able to change their reading book unless an adult has heard them read. 


Whilst reading with your child you could check their understanding further by asking key questions, such as:

  • Can you describe the setting?
  • Can you predict what might happen next?
  • What can you tell me about that character's personality?
  • Who was the main character in the book?
  • From the title/heading, can you predict what the text will be about?
  • Why do you think …..?
  • Why did …..?
  • How do you know that …..?
  • What might happen if …..?
  • What can you infer from the picture on the page?
  • Why do they …..?
  • How do you know?



Top tips for staying safe online!


1)      Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.

2)      Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself.  Once you’ve put  a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.

3)      Keep your privacy settings as high as possible

4)      Never give out your passwords

5)      Don’t befriend people you don’t know

6)      Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online.  Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do

7)      Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are

8)      Think carefully about what you say before you post something online

9)      Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude

10)   If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
