Homework is completed in the red homework books each week.
Homework is handed out every Friday and due in the following Thursday. It includes one piece of English and Maths, related to what we have covered in class. All homework is marked each week. If homework is not handed in on time, the child may be asked to complete it during break time on Thursday.
Every child has chosen a reading book from the class library to take home every week and read. Children are required to read every night and we ask parents to sign their reading records daily. We collect reading books and reading records in every day and Mrs Settle records how many times each child has read.
Hornbeam Class have 2 PE sessions a week. Usually, these PE sessions will be on a Tuesday and Friday, although this may sometimes change and we therefore require all children to have their PE kit with them Monday to Friday.
Children must have both an indoor kit (royal blue shorts, white t-shirt and plimsolls/indoor trainers) and an outdoor kit (royal blue tracksuit top, bottoms and outdoor trainers).
All hair must be tied back and earrings must either be removed or taped over.
Some children may also be required to attend swimming, when they will be transported in a coach to the swimming pool.
If your child is unable to participate within a PE lesson, a letter needs to be written and handed to the teacher.
