Welcome Falcons!


I am extremely excited to be back to normal for the Summer term! I cannot wait to see what we can achieve as we finish off the year. 


If you have any questions please email me on our class email address -

General Information


Class Teacher - Mr Dalton

Other Adults - Miss Houghton, Miss Palmer

P.E - Monday, Wednesday. Under our COVID-19 policy all P.E will be outdoor and on P.E days children must come to school in their kit.  Please ensure correct Balliol P.E kit is worn along with dark hoodies and tracksuit bottoms for the cold winter months. Children MUST have appropriate trainers for outdoor lessons.


Weekly Homework Information


Under the new Covid-19 policies we are unable to send homework planners home with children. Due to this,  we are asking this year for parents to email us weekly on the class email ( to inform us of the continuous homework (spelling, reading and timestables practice) children are doing at home. This will be tracked and referred to during parent consultations while other homework will be tracked by us. 


Continuous Homework


- Spelling. Practice daily. Children will receive personalised spelling to practise in school but we are unable to send these home. Their spellings will instead be posted on here with homework each week and they can practise them at home. Children may also wish to use SpellingFrame to practise any spelling patterns they find difficult. 


- Reading. 15+ minutes daily. Your child will have a school book they can read at home; when finished this book can be returned and swapped but only on a Friday. Please question your child about what they have read. A copy of our comprehension scheme with example questions is posted below.


- Timestables. Practice as often as possible (daily). TTRockstars is a great way to do this.


Resources for these can be found below.


Set Homework


-Homework Books, Set every week (Maths one week, English the next) on a Friday. In for the following Friday. These books are extremely precious and it is important they are kept safe and neat. The tasks set in them will link with the weeks work.


- MyMaths, Set every week on a Friday. In for the following Friday. These tasks are important as they link with and consolidate the weeks maths lessons.


- Topic Task, Set as appropriate.


- Examples of other optional home learning tasks may be found on our termly topic news letters.
