Reminder about school uniform: Plain stud earrings are allowed but please avoid wearing earrings on Wednesdays and Thursdays as they must be taken out for PE.


Homework is set each Friday via Google Classroom and is due to be handed in the following Friday. There will be English and Maths homework, focusing on things we have been learning that week in class. Along with the set homework tasks and reading, all children are expected to be practising timetables through TT Rockstars and spellings.


At St Bede’s, we link across subjects, using a cross-curricular approach.
