Thank you so much for the fantastic recounts/diary entries of our trip to the National Maritime Museum.


Hurray, our Homework Diaries have arrived.

Please remember:

  • Please record any reading the your child has done at home on the day. Each day that your child has read, he/she will receive a Class-Dojo point.
  • Class-Dojo log-ins for parents as well as Mathletics log-ins will find their way into the homework diaries over the course of this week.
  • In their homework diary, your child will have a green stamp at the end of each day to show they are following our school’s ‘Good to be Green’ behaviour policy. If they do not get a green stamp it is because they have not ended the day on a green card or have received a red card during the day. You will be notified by text if a red card consequence has occurred.
