 CLASS DOJO is our new app for behaviour celebrations and rewards in school. You can download the CLASS DOJO app on your mobile phone or tablet now using your unique code from Miss Brent. Class Dojo is a brilliant way of allowing you to see how your child is doing at school every single day. We challenge all of the children in 3AB to be '100% green' and the more green dojo points earned the more prizes to be earnt too. Children with the most points each week will receive rewards in class and will also have their name placed in a school draw for a bigger prize at the end of term. There is also the function for red dojos for those children who are not consistently following the class and school rules, these will be used alongside verbal warnings and within our usual behaviour policy sanctions.  


Homework information for parents

Homework is a challenge we set to develop your child's independence in applying key English and Maths skills. Homework is their own responsibility and although we are happy for you to assist them where help is needed, please ensure that they have the resilience to give it a go first independently. If you feel that your child is struggling at any time with their homework then please do not hesitate to talk to Miss Brent.

  Each week we would like your child to focus on their times tables recall at home.

The children will be tested across three standards: Bronze, Silver and Gold.

Bronze: You can say the times tables in order.

Silver: You can answer questions out of order.

Gold: You can answer questions using the division facts for the times-tables.

Can you accept the challenge to learn as many tables as possible to become a Gold champion? How high will your balloon go?

The children will be given a set of spellings to practice for a short test once a week. It would be wonderful if you would encourage the children to practice these in order for the children to achieve their best score!


Handwriting is also an important part of English. Therefore, we have provided below a tablet friendly letter join for the children to practice at home, alongside their practice in school.

We would like you to read at home every night. We don't mind what you read (it could be a newspaper, a comic, a magazine or even on a kindle or iPad) but we do ask that you record it in your planner each day and get an adult to sign. 

Remember you can earn rewards for reading at home everyday and this may help you achieve 'Reader of the Week'. It is expected that the children read and record in their planners a minimum of 3 reads per week.

Who will be this week's star reader?

3AB's PE lessons will be EVERY Tuesday and Thursday. It is expected that pupils wear the correct school kit (as modelled by monkey). All earrings need to be removed for PE plus a bobble be provided to tie back long hair. In colder months, pupils may wish to bring a tracksuit. Please could you also ensure all items of P.E kit are clearly labelled with your child's name. Thank you.

We will keep you up to date with reminders via our school texting service throughout the year. If you change your number, please let the school office know.


Any parent help is greatly appreciated within school. If you are interested in helping within school or on school trips then please do not hesitate to contact the school office with your up to date DBS details or to arrange a DBS check now.
