Physical Education (PE)

Our PE days are every Monday and Wednesday

Your child needs to come into school wearing their PE kit, which consists of a plain t-shirt, plain joggers/shorts and a plain jumper. Trainers are also allowed. Your child will stay in their PE kit for the whole day.  


Homework will be set every Thursday, and will consist of a Mathletics task, set of spelling words (written and on Spelling Shed) and a writing task. Please return the homework on Thursday so it can be checked. 

Reading and Reading Records

We expect your child to read every day. Your child's reading record must be brought in on Friday to be checked by Mrs McDonald, Mrs Bell or Mrs Sharma. Reading is such an important part of your child's development so please prioritise this task.
