What does the week look 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 Tuesday when we come dressed in our PE kits! In the afternoons we have sessions of History or Geography, Music, Spanish, Science, R.E and well-being.
 
Children take home a school reading book, which they can change on a Monday and Thursday. Each week, children should aim to read their home reading book every week night as well as practicing their times tables. Spellings and homework will all be available online at DB Primary. Children have their own log ins and should check every weekday. DB Primary can be accessed on a laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Spellings are set on a Monday and various spelling activities in school are completed in the week, ready for the test on Friday. English homework is set a Wednesday and Maths on a Tuesday. Children also have Times Tables Rock Star log ins and Oxford Reading Buddy log ins. They can log in at any time and read or practise their tables.
 
Children also choose a class reading book from the class shelf and have opportunities to read in school every day.
 
We remember to wash our hands, treat each other kindly with respect and look after one another.
