PE - Our PE days are Tuesday and every other Wednesday, but please have your PE kit in school every day in case we have an extra chance to do PE.
Home Reading – Our fantastic volunteer Mrs Scrivens will change your child’s home reading book on a FRIDAY. Please read at home with your child as often as possible and make a note in their planner. Please send your book bag to school every day as we may change the books and hear the children on different days.
Home Learning – Home-learning is always linked to the learning we have done that week. It is given out every Wednesday in homework books. It must be returned by the following Monday so that it can be marked and sent back to you.
Uniform – Please make sure your child’s uniform, PE kit and coat is clearly labelled. Jewellery is not allowed in school except for simple stud earrings.
