Homework, Spellings and Activities


Homework books are sent home on Wednesdays and expected to be returned to school each Monday. Children should complete one homework task, of their choice, from the menu each week. If your child struggles to complete their homework at home they can attend a lunch time homework club on Wednesdays.

There will also be activities set on My Maths, DB Primary and Spelling Shed, which the children can choose to complete to develop their skills and learning at home.


Spelling lists will be sent home every Monday and the children will be tested on the spellings from that week on the Thursday. Children are expected to practice their spellings at home in preparation for the test. The spelling journal has a 'Look, Cover, Write, Check' grid for children to use when practising. Please bring your spelling journal to school everyday. You will need this for our spelling lessons. You can also use the DB Primary website and Spelling Shed to practise your spellings at home.

Physical Education

Physical Education lessons will take place on a Tuesday and a Wednesday. On Tuesday we will be taught by One Goal and on Wednesday we will be learning dance and games with Mrs Cousins. Please note that some P.E lessons may be outdoors.

Children are expected to have full P.E kit in school for both sessions and suitable outdoor clothing for any lessons which are outdoors. If the weather conditions are poor P.E will take place in the school hall. 

Indoor: white t-shirt, navy shorts, white socks, black plimsolls.

Outdoor: white t-shirt, navy jogging bottoms, school hoodie, white socks, trainers.

Reading Records

Reading books and a signed reading record should be brought into school daily. Children will earn praise points if they read every night and if their reading record is signed. We read daily after lunch time so it is important that the children bring their book into school to read at this time.


Class Four are participating in Gospel singing this year, every Friday morning. Our wonderful teacher, Mel, is teaching us how to perform and show off our voices.
