House Teams

At The King's, every child in school is in a house. The houses are Castle, Sconce, Sherwood and Trent. Throughout the year, all children will have the opportunity to represent their house in intra-house competitions. 

Home Learning 

Homework will be set at the beginning of each term. Children can select different items from the homework menu to complete. At the end of the term, if the children have completed enough homework to earn 100 points, they will be entered into a prize draw.


Additional weekly homework of spellings or maths may be set by Miss Barnaby. This can also be used to earn points. 


Please encourage your child to read regularly and record in their school diary. If children have access to the internet at home, the links for Times Tables Rocks Stars and an arithmetic practice are below:
