Value: Courage

Our value this term is courage. Year 5 will be performing an assembly about this theme towards the end of November.



I would be grateful if you can ensure your child has the correct school uniform.  Trainers and pump type shoes are not acceptable footwear.  Hooded tops are also not to be worn.   If your child does not have the correct uniform for any reason, please provide a letter with a brief explanation.   Thank you for your co-operation in this matter.





Please support your child in listening to them read three times a week, encouraging them to learn their spellings and helping them with their weekly English or Maths homework.

Thank you for all your support. 


It is also so important that your child ENJOYS reading. Please encourage them to read something that they enjoy every day. This could be a novel, a newspaper or a leaflet - anything!
