What Our Week Looks Like

We have a jam packed week that starts off with spellings and reading.
English, reading, maths and mental maths skills are taught every day.
We have PE on a Monday when we come dressed in our PE kits! In the other afternoons we have sessions of Topic, Science, R.E and well-being. Children also choose a class reading book from the class shelf and have opportunities to read in school every day.
 
Children take home a school reading book, which they can change on a Monday and Thursday. When the book is brought back into school, it goes into our ‘quarantine’ box for 3 days before being put back on the shelf to be shared with others. Each week, children should aim to read their home reading book every week night as well as practicing their times tables. Spellings are given out on a Monday and various spelling activities are completed in the week, ready for the test on Friday. English homework is given out on a Wednesday and Maths on a Tuesday.
 
We have just launched DB primary and every child now has a log in. DB Primary can be accessed on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Homework will begin appearing on here soon, as will games, tasks and blogs!
 
We remember to wash our hands, treat each other kindly, with respect and look after one another.
