Maths and spelling homework will be set every week on a Friday. Maths homework should be brought into school on the following Tuesday for marking and a spelling assessment will be carried out on the following Friday.
In addition, children should read at least 4 times a week at home and practise their times tables. All children should have a password to access to the website 'Times Tables Rock Stars' to support their times tables learning.

Every class has a weekly library session during which time they can exchange their reading books and ask for guidance and support for their individual book choices from our School Librarian.
Library day is Thursday.
Summer term PE days are:
Alder Class - Monday and Wednesday
Oak Class - Wednesday and Thursday
Rowan Class - Wednesday
Rowan Class will swim every Friday during the Summer term
Please ensure your child wears their correct PE kit to school on the correct days. These must all be labelled clearly with your child’s name (including their shoes).

If your child wears earrings it is easier to remove them before school on these days. Children will be asked to take out their own earrings for PE. If they are unable to do so, they must be covered with micro-porous tape during PE.
All children are encouraged to bring a water bottle to school each day to drink regularly in their classroom and maintain good hydration. Please ensure your child’s name is written clearly on their bottle.
Please provide your child with a piece of fruit or vegetable to eat during their mid-morning break. Parents have the option of ordering a small carton of milk.

A healthy and nutritious lunch will help to boost your child’s energy levels for learning throughout the afternoon. We encourage all our children to eat a hot meal each day. However, if you choose to provide a packed lunch for your child, please remember that Northgate is a ‘nut-free’ school.
