Well done to all the children that completed their healthy eating homework. We really enjoyed looking at all your fantastic creations.


Well done to all the children they have worked very hard this week to sort and discuss healthy and unhealthy practices.

We Are Learning

This week we have continued the topic of keeping healthy. The children have enjoyed learning about ways to keep themselves safe when playing indoors and outdoors. The children have discussed ways they can be safe when using the internet and the importance of seeking help from an adult when unsure about something. Please encourage your child to discuss with you what they have learnt this week.

Year Group Events

None at the moment but we will keep you informed.


Please remember to read at home with your child and practise the word cards in their word wallets.

Year Group Information


At Dorrington, homework is considered to be a vital part of the children’s education, as it not only supports but enhances the learning taking place in school. We ask that all parents and carers support children in their homework and encourage them to take responsibility for their own learning.

Homework will be given out every Friday and includes one piece for literacy, numeracy, science/IPC and spellings. In addition, we ask that children read at least three times per week to an adult and have their reading records completed accordingly. As an ongoing commitment to drive progress in mathematics at Dorrington, children also have a multiplication project to complete each week. All homework will be collected on the following Thursday.


Each week children participate in two physical education sessions (one indoor the other outdoor). These P.E. sessions play a vital role in educating children about the benefits of enjoying a healthy lifestyle as well as promoting the spiritual, moral social and cultural aspects associated with P.E.  It is therefore important that all children participate in these sessions.

Please ensure children have the appropriate P.E. kit for their PE days:

White T-shirt
Black Shorts/Tracksuit bottoms
Suitable footwear (Trainers for outdoor P.E.)


If you have any questions or queries regarding your child, please do not hesitate to contact the school office to arrange to speak to a year group teacher or make an appointment if necessary.


At Dorrington, we believe that the Internet plays an important role in developing children’s learning. As part of our commitment to E-Safety we recommend that children use  ‘Safe Search’ (Click the link below) when browsing the Internet at home. Safe search is designed to make it safer for children to access webpages. However, it is still recommended that children are always supervised when using the Internet.
