PE is on a Monday. Pupils should come to school dressed in their PE kit.
Entry / Exit from School:
Our class will enter the school from the side gate on Carlisle Road. Parents and Carers drop off and collect their child outside the classroom door at the bottom of the ramp in the Year 1 playground. You may then exit through the gate at the bottom of the playground which leads to the ginnel. Please turn right and follow the one way system in the ginnel.

Newsletters and Information for Parents and Carers
Please find our latest newsletters and information for parents and carers in the folders below. The KIRF targets are 'Key Instant Recall Facts' in Maths. They focus on basic mental Maths recall skills to support the children in increasing their speed and accuracy of mental calculation. These are changed each half-term and feed into our Maths learning in school. Please also find below our Year 1 and 2 Common Exception Words. These are words which don't follow a spelling rule or pattern and many of which Phonics won't apply to. Please support your child at home to learn their KIRF Targets and Common Exception words.
Our Online Resources
Down below you will find the range of different online resources your child can access at home. Logins have been sent home with your child for these so please encourage them to log on as often as possible. Sometimes the children's homework will be set on these platforms so please keep a look out for added tasks.
Please note: Times Table Rock Stars is used for Year 2 children upwards in school. Numbots is a partner program designed especially for younger children so Year 1 are encouraged to use this instead of Times Table Rock Stars.
