 All homework needs to be completed in pencil, to a high standard. Please aim for consistently neat work!

Homework will be given out on a Monday to be handed back in on a Friday. This may include a piece of Maths homework, English homework, Spelling and Grammar or Topic research. 

If homework is not handed in on time, your child will complete this at break time or lunch time. On other occasions, if work has not been completed during lesson time, your child will be responsible for completing this at home.



We are really enjoying reading the adventure story 'City of Ember' and we also have our daily DEaR (Drop Everything and Read) session where we participate in different group reading activities and can even choose our own text. We are encouraging the children to read a variety of texts including newspaper articles, blogs, scripts, comics, poems and instructions to name a few. We will be updating our webpage soon on our new Accelerated Reading Scheme.


Remember to read five times at home and get your reading record signed for your chance to win a book in our monthly golden ticket prize draw.



We are concerned by the number of children not bringing their PE kit to school. 

PE kits are needed for lessons on a Monday.

 Please ensure that your child has a red top, black leggings or shorts and trainers.


Children who do not bring their PE kit will have to observe the lesson and record its content.







At Biddick Primary and Nursery School, we have made correct school uniform a priority this year. Please ensure that your child is wearing the correct uniform for school. Shirts and sweatshirts with the school logo are not essential, however it is vital that uniform follows the school colour scheme. We want all children to take pride in coming to school dressed appropriately.
