Spellings - Swift Class

Practise your spellings and prepare for our spelling quiz on Friday 


Monday, 21 September 2020


PE in Ravens this week is on Tuesday and Thursday. Next week PE will be on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Children need a plain white t-shirt and trainers on these days. They can come to school in their PE bottoms, and must change into their PE tops at school. 

Children will be given their homework on Friday to be brought back on Monday. New spellings will be given out on Monday. Their spelling test will be on Friday. 

Reading books can be brought home, but will need to be handed in on Friday. New books can then be chosen on Monday for the week.

A reminder that school dinner menus are on the website. 

Thank you for your continued support
