School Calendar — Redhill School


Welcome Back to our Summer Term! 

I hope you have all had a relaxing and fun Easter!

 Our summer term will see us joining forces with Year 4 in our new Year 3 / 4 bubble. We will also be beginning our after-school clubs. Please see our topic web below to see what new and fun things we will be looking forward to this term. 

News and Updates

Summer  - we will be doing P.E on a Monday and a Thursday.  As before, to help with logistics, the children should come to school wearing their P.E kit and a plain, dark-colored tracksuit on a day we have P.E. T. Our P.E day will be on Monday and a Thursday


Home Learning 

If you have to isolate, you will find a tap at the top of this page. It will be called 'Home Learning Week...' 

Within this file, there will be Maths, English, and Foundation tasks to work through. If a worksheet or PPT is needed for the lesson, it will also be uploaded to the file.


If you ever have any concerns or need to speak to me, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Mrs. Dunford



Homework will be handed out on a Friday and should be handed back by the following Thursday. 

Homework Details

General Children will receive one piece of Maths or one piece of English homework each week. Children will be provided with a green Homework book to complete their weekly work.

Following the success of the children submitting their home learning on Class Dojo, we have decided to continue using Class Dojo throughout the year to submit homework tasks. More details will be provided when we return back to school.  

Maths It is recommended that children play on TT Rockstars weekly to encourage rapid recall of all timetables.

Spelling - Spelling patterns and keywords will be sent home on a Friday in preparation for an informal test the following week. The words will also be updated to this class page and on Spelling Shed - see the 'Spellings' link. We will be using 'Spelling Shed' as an interactive tool for children to practice their spellings in class, children will also need to go on this at home as part of their spelling homework. 

Reading - For their reading homework, the children are expected to read for 15 – 20 minutes each day. We ask that parents monitor their child’s reading and acknowledge this by signing their reading records every week. Mrs Sykes and I will be checking the children’s reading records every week and will send them home with a book at the appropriate reading level. Reading a breadth of books/ leaflets/ comics for pleasure is also encouraged! Whenever possible please question them on the book they are reading, this would be beneficial to ensure they are fully comprehending what they are reading.

Your support with all homework and reading is very much appreciated so thank you in advance!
