Key information


Please remember we have outdoor PE on a Wednesday afternoon and indoor PE on a Thursday morning so please make sure you come in your PE kit ready to get active.


The only way you become a reader is by reading ! 

We expect the children to be reading at least three times per week at home and for it to be recorded in their reading diary. Please make sure their books and diaries come into school on a Monday for us check and sign to then go home on a Tuesday. It can include any genre of book, comics, newspapers, fiction, non-fiction or whatever takes their fancy.  We just want it to be a pleasurable time for them and to develop a love of reading.  We really enjoy listening to the children's conversations about the books they are enjoying at home.

Home learning

Spellings are set on a Tuesday via Spelling Shed and in their diaries. The children will then look at them the on the following Monday. We want spellings to be more than a test of memory so we play games with the words and use them in our writing.

Learning Powers

At Offmore we believe in giving our children the skills they need to be enthusiastic, positive and successful learners.

The children can earn points for using their learning powers. These include:

Busy Bee power- given for active learning, such as being focused.

Unicorn powers are given for playing and exploring, using a 'can do' approach.

Magnifying powers are given for creating and thinking critically, such as using learning walls independently to further own learning.
