Our trips and visitors for the year will include the Horniman Museum, a workshop run by the Museum of London, a visit to a chocolate factory, a local area walk, and overnight stay in school, and many more.

Our weekly timetable can be found at the bottom of the page, however it may change due to special events or changes in the calendar.

Physical Education (PE)

Our PE days are every Monday and Wednesday

Your child needs to come into school wearing their PE kit, which consists of a plain t-shirt (white or house colours), plain joggers/shorts and a plain jumper. Trainers are also allowed. Your child will stay in their PE kit for the whole day.  


Homework will be set every Friday, and will consist of at least 2 Mathletics tasks, a set of spelling words (written and on Spelling Shed) and a writing task. Please return the homework on Thursday so that it can be checked. 

Reading and Reading Records

We expect your child to read every day. Your child's reading book and record must be brought in every day to be checked by an adult. Reading is such an important part of your child's development so please prioritise this task. 

Our Class Rewards

We have many rewards in Fig Class, which consists of stickers, stamps, prizes, golden time, Class Dojo points throughout the week, Golden Globes, extra play and certificates every Friday.
