 - Our PE days are Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

  • 1KH library day is Wednesday.
  • 1AJ library day is Monday. 




Please ensure that you are reading with your child each night. This will ensure that they make progress within our Great Ravenswood Readers and earn a trip to WHSmiths at the end of the term. 


Spelling homework should now be completed in the small blue books. Children should look, cover, write and check their words several times and then have a go at writing 5 words in a sentence. 


Maths homework should be completed in the yellow books. 


Please make sure both homework books are back in school on Wednesdays.
