Useful Information


Neptune PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Children are required to bring their PE kits to school at the beginning of term to leave on their pegs and can be collected again at the end of term. Our PE uniform consists of black shorts/jogging bottoms, white top, trainers or plimsoles and tracksuit top if required.


A bingo grid will be sent home with fun activities and challenges to support your child’s learning. This is also available on the 'homework' tab on our class webpage. You can choose in what order to complete the activities, with fortnightly hand in dates. Please ensure your child completes the homework grid so we can celebrate and looks at everyone’s work together. For any activities that cannot be physically handed in, please email photographs to the school office with the subject: Neptune Homework.


Each week, key spellings and spelling patterns will be published on the class page of the school website. These spellings are taught in class and will be recapped and revised throughout the year. Please continue to practise these at home to support reading and writing skills.


Reading Books

Little Wandle scheme:

Your child will bring home a reading book which will be changed weekly. This will be a book that they have already read during three adult-led group reading sessions. Keeping their book for the whole week will ensure children become confident not only reading the words, but also with their fluency, tone of voice and comprehension of the story.


Accelerated Reader scheme:

Pupils will choose a book from their reading level which has been determined by the scheme's comprehension quiz. After reading the book and when they feel confident to do so, a mini quiz will be taken to assess their understanding of the book and determine when it can be changed.


Please remember to read with your child for 10-15 minutes each night. This will make a huge difference to their progress and enjoyment of reading. We also encourage the reading of any materials which interest your child such as magazines, leaflets, posters, non-fiction books and annuals.
