In Summer 2 the children will be attending swimming lessons at Castleview Academy.

Girls will need a black or navy swimsuit and a swimming cap (which can be purchased at Castleview). Boys will need black or navy swimming trunks (no shorts).



Homework will be given out on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday.

Spelling test is on a Monday and new spelling will be issued on a Monday night, with a reminder sent home on a Friday with their homework.  

Children will also have a maths target to practise. Maths targets are tested on a Monday morning.



Reading books need to be brought to school every day.

Please hear your child read every day and record the pages read and the date in their home reading journal. Books can be changed daily if they have been signed off by a parent. If your child forgets to bring home their home reader they can read a book from home instead.

Try to read a story to your child every day.

Library books will be brought home weekly.
