Welcome to Upper Key Stage 2 department's page.

We are all really looking forward to a fabulous school year!

Department information:

PE

Mrs O'Mahony has posted on Class Dojo about wearing PE kit on your PE day:

- blue, black or dark grey jogging pants/shorts
- plain white t-shirt
- blue, black or dark grey hoodie/sweatshirt (weather dependent)
- pumps for indoor PE, trainers for outdoors

If you need any help sourcing uniform for September or would like to have some of our preloved items, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs O'Mahony or Julie, our Family Support worker.

 

Homework

Homework will be sent on Friday, could it please be returned by Wednesday, if your child has a problem with their homework they can ask their class teacher about it on Monday or Tuesday. Please encourage your child to complete their homework as this is good practice for the transition to high school. In addition, it would be helpful if your child could read regularly (10/15 minutes per night), practise times tables, using 'Times Tables Rock Stars' and learn their spellings. Reading books, and reading records, should be brought into school every Friday for checking - even if they are still reading them.

 

Class Dojo

We are continuing to use Class Dojo as a reward system and to communicate more effectively with parents, thank you to all that have signed up to their parent account. Please sign up as soon as possible if you haven't done so already.

 

Our topics are as follows: 

Autumn Term - Blackpool

Spring Term - Edinburgh

Summer Term - India

 

If you can spare any time

If any parents, or grandparents, are able to spare any time, we are always happy to welcome an extra pair of hands to listen to readers, change books, etc. Just speak to your child's class teacher.

 

If you have any further questions, or need to contact us for any reason, we are available any night after school except Wednesday; you can also message us through Class Dojo or email us:
