We have P.E on Thursdays each week and it is really important that your child is properly equipped for these lessons with T-shirt, shorts, trainers and as the weather gets colder, track suit bottoms.

 

Every child will be sent home weekly homework,consisting of spellings and timetables on a Monday. This will need to be brought back to school the following Monday every week.

 

Reading record books are sent home daily. It is important that every child reads on a daily basis and has their book signed. This book should be brought to school every day.
