Autumn 2019     Spring 2020   Summer 2020


Monday: During the Summer Term we send home spellings to learn. We test these on Friday.

Thursday: Two reading books are sent home to read for the week. These are then changed on the following Thursday.

Thursday is also our homework day. This is usually Maths related. Homework is to be completed and returned by the following Thursday. Sometimes we may send home topic work, particularly if we are starting a new topic!

Once a week: Handwriting at home books. Each group have new handwriting to practise, sent home on a set day depending on which group the child is in.

Reading: Reading with an adult should be carried out for 10 minutes a night for at least 4 nights a week.


PE Kit - Infants: School T/shirt (available from Jay Sports) or plain white T/shirt, traditional shorts and black plimsolls (gusset type for Infants) – NO LACES PLEASE.  A draw string bag for PE kit clearly labelled with your child's name. In the cold weather a track suit or similar is ideal for outdoor warmth. Infants may wear trainers for outdoor PE when they can easily put them on and off.

Assessment Frameworks

At Days Lane, we use assessment frameworks to track children's progress towards meeting age related expectations in reading, writing and maths. Parents/ carers are provided with copies of their child's assessment frameworks, at different points in the year, so that they can identify what their child has achieved and their next steps in learning (targets).
