  • School is providing all stationery but we're asking children to bring a small, simple pencil case in which to store these items.  (20cm as a rough guide)
  • We're asking for no rucksacks or bookbags in order to minimise the things brought in.  However, children will still bring a flask and lunchbox (unless they've ordered a packed lunch from AIP)
  •  PE kits will be worn to school on the appropriate days so as to avoid changing in school and to avoid additional bags and storage in cloakrooms.  4G Monday and Thursday, 4S Thursday and Friday.
  • Although children WILL be given reading books, we will just do this in poly-wallets and have a "quarantine" system when they come back into school before they are re-allocated to anyone else.  
My Maths - this will begin shortly.  Remember it's a good idea to do the "practice" task first before attempting the homework.  The first level login is "astwood" and password "cosine242"  Then use your own username which is 3 numbers and a password of 3 letters.  If you don't have this please ask! 

TT Rockstars info will come out shortly.  Ongoing times tables work should also be done on TT Rockstars Remember to practise in the 'garage' game but try to improve your RockStar Status in the 'studio' game.  The system is designed to be intuitive and will respond to your child's speed and accuracy to give a personalised experience.  Use the same username and password details as on my maths.

Week of 14th September

Our topic work will continue with Autumn.  Orange homework books go home on Thursday 17th and are due back in on Monday 21st.  The homework information is below in the documents folder. 

We have now decided to send out the white home/school reading diaries.  These will come home shortly. 

We are still assessing the children's English and spelling and will send out appropriate words to learn next Thursday, 24th September.  The formal tests will then commence the following week.

Please can we remind you to send in a letter if your child is going to be picked up by anyone other than their mother or father. If it is a regular arrangement a letter stating that will suffice for the year.


Book Club will resume later in the year - fingers crossed
