Each child will receive a spelling homework sheet on a Friday. They should read three times per week and have their signed reading record in by Thursday to be a reading star. 

Times table practise is also part of their homework - to learn your times tables with instant recall click here for TT Rockstars or click here for Table Mountain. If you want to have a go at the times tables test, try this link, click here.


Swimming will take place on a Tuesday morning.

Boys must wear swim shorts above the knee and girls, a full swimming costume. A towel must be provided from home.

Rochdale baths will not permit children to wear earrings for lessons, therefore earrings must either be removed by the child in class prior to a swimming lesson starting, or removed by adults at home. However stud earrings can be covered up with a plaster, these must be provided by parents and carers at home.

If you are thinking about getting your child’s ears pierced, please consider when their swimming lessons are. When ears have just been pierced, the earrings are not allowed to be removed until 6 weeks after they have been done. As a result of this, 6 hours of lessons will be missed.

Reading stars

Reading stars are a way of rewarding and encouraging parents and children to read together on a regular basis.

Reading skills are vital to your child and their future progress. If your child reads at least 3 times in a week, they are entered into a prize draw where they can win a book. This encourages parents and children to enjoy reading together. Children love to win the prize book and it really encourages and motivates them to try hard to improve their reading.

Please sign their reading record book every time you read with your child and return their book to school every day.

We appreciate your support and involvement.
