How to contact us
Please do not hesitate to contact us via the office or in person after school if you need to speak to us about anything. You can also email us –
The children are provided in school with all the equipment they will need for learning. Each child in Morpurgo class has their own equipment which they are expected to take care of.
Children will have their PE lessons on a Monday and Thursday this term. Please ensure that your child is wearing their PE kit in school on the correct days so they can fully access their PE lessons.
For warmer weather PE kit should be:
White t-shirt and blue or black shorts, suitable trainers.
For colder weather PE kit should be:
White t-shirt, navy/black jogging bottoms and jumper, suitable trainers.
Whatever the weather, children need to have a water bottle in all week to rehydrate during PE lessons and at other times.
As always, no jewellery please, except a small pair of studs for pierced ears which the children will need to be able to remove for PE lessons. Please no nail varnish and tie hair back if below shoulder length.
Please send your child to school every day with a water bottle as they are currently unable to use the school water fountains. Some children have the same style of water bottle so please ensure you name your child's bottle to avoid any confusion.
Homework will be set on Fridays and should be handed in by the following Wednesday.
Children will be given a spelling list each Friday (this will be stuck into their planner) to practise regularly throughout the week in their (green) home learning journals, including putting the spellings into sentences. Their books should be brought back to school on Thursday to be checked before sending home again on Friday. They will also be tested on their spellings on Thursdays.
Children should continue to read on a daily basis, including sharing books together. Please ensure their planner is signed by an adult every time you hear them read. As the Eynesbury Echo reminds us weekly, there are great benefits to be had from regular reading!
All children have a TT Rockstars login and should be practising regularly using this. Many children are having lots of fun with this and seeing their knowledge and speed increase. We will be checking to see who has logged on and who has beaten their previous scores.
Please sign your child's planner at the bottom of the page each week and ensure your child has this at school on Friday for us to check. The planners do need to be in every day because we sometimes do spot checks throughout the week to keep a close eye on reading and times tables practice.
If you have any issues/ concerns about any aspect of the homework please do contact us. You can write to us, email us or make a note in the children’s planner.
