Cloverlea Primary School

Inspiring children to care, learn and achieve

Autumn Term


Reading books will be changed twice a week, please make sure that you send your child's reading book into school every Tuesday and Friday to be changed. A teacher or Teaching Assistant will listen to your child read on a fortnightly basis during 1:1 reading and/or group guided reading and weekly during whole class reading sessions. At home, please read daily with your child and please continue to write comments in their reading diaries to facilitate communication between home and school regarding your child’s reading.



Homework will set each Friday via our ClassDojo. This will include Spellings, English and Maths which will often be set via MyMaths.  Homework should be submitted to Mrs. Dent by the following Wednesday via the ClassDojo. 

Spellings and times tables will be tested every Friday in school.



During the Autumn Term, our PE days will be on Wednesday and Fridays. Please come to school in your PE kits on those days.
