Marshland St James Primary and Nursery School

"A Member of the Diocese of Ely Multi-Academy Trust"


P.E. days will be Tuesdays and Fridays. Children will need shorts, jogging bottoms in colder weather, t-shirt and trainers or plimsolls when working outside.  It is advisable that children bring their P.E. kit into school on a Monday and leave it on their peg during the week.

Children are expected to bring their reading folder and water bottle to school every day.  Children should keep their reading book and reading record in the book folder.  Please support your child by reading with them regularly.  Children should share their reading book with parents/carers and other family members every evening.  Discussion about the book also contributes to your child’s learning.  Please add comments and/or initial in the reading record so that we know when your child’s book needs changing.

We will also be changing our library books and taking some time to share books in the library. Could you please ensure that your children have their their library boks in school on a Friday morning.

Times tables is a key element to maths learning.  Children are expected to learn their x 2, x 5 and x 10 during Year 1 and Year 2. We will be sending other pieces of homework hoe throughtout the coming weeks.

If you have any questions about your child’s learning or classroom routines please do not hesitate to ask.  It is always best to book an appointment with me after school so that the class is not disturbed.  This can be done through the school office staff.
