Cloverlea Primary School

Inspiring children to care, learn and achieve

Spring Term


Reading books should be in school every day as part of the morning ERIC (Everyone Reading in Class) routine. 

A teacher/TA will listen to your child read on a fortnightly basis during Guided and 1:1 reading. At home, please continue to write comments in their reading diaries to facilitate communication between home and school regarding your child’s reading.



Homework will be issued digitally every Friday. 

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

The aim is to know your multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 x 12. 



During the Spring Term, our PE days will be Tuesday, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please come to school in your PE kits on those days. Swimming lessons finish Tuesday 31st January.
