Our direct year group email is As both classes use this email, please make it clear in the subject line who the email is for (FAO Mr Barlow, Mrs McLean or Miss Li). 


Names in clothing:

Please ensure that your child's clothing is clearly labelled with their name so their clothing can be rightfully returned (should it be taken off).


  • Each week, spellings will be set to learn. They will be uploaded onto Google Classroom on Monday so you can access them there.

  • In addition, there will be a weekly homework task set on Google Classroom which the children will need to complete and submit for us to mark. This will be a grammar homework.
