This term, Elm's P.E. will be on Tuesday (outdoor) and Thursday (Indoor) and afternoons. On these P.E. days, children must come to school in their P.E. kit. Please ensure correct Balliol P.E. kit is worn and, in colder weather, that warm long-legged and long-sleeved clothing is provided, alongside appropriate footwear.

The School App 

We use this to send home important information and to keep you up to date.  Please consider downloading this (if you do not already have it) so that you don't miss anything important. 



We appreciate and thank you for all the support you give to the children in relation to their home learning.  Below is what we hope is useful information for you to continue with this support.


Reading: Children will have a reading book to take home to share and read with you. They will be able to change these throughout the week, Please listen to your child read as often as possible for 10-15 minutes at least 3-4 times a week. 


Spellings: Children will have new spellings every week with a dictation test on Fridays. Spellings will of course be available on this class page so please encourage your child to practise at home regularly too! 


Times tables: these help with so many areas of maths; please encourage your child to practise 10-15 minutes every day. (TT Rockstars)

Maths and English: We will continue to set children homework in their CGP SPAG and Maths books based on their learning from the week. This will be set on a Friday and expected back in the following week to be marked. The pages that children need to complete are listed on the inside of the front cover, please ensure children do not do more pages than this.
