Pupils: Please remember to check the timetable to see where and how you should record your learning in the books that were sent home via the Drive Thru.

Writing in spelling, English and cornerstones books should be in black pen with dates and titles underlined using a ruler. All drawings should be completed using a pencil and colouring using pencils only.

Work in maths books should be completed in pencil and all lines drawn using a ruler.

Self marking at school is completed using a purple pen but any contrasting colour is fine at home.
