Physical Education (PE)

Our PE days are every Wednesday and Thursday

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 Friday, and will consist of a variety of Mathletics tasks, set of spelling words (written and on Spelling Shed) and a writing tasks. 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 every day to be signed. Reading is such an important part of your child's development so please prioritise this task. 

Our Class Rewards

We have many rewards in Holly Class, which consist of:

Class dojo points, Golden Globes, stickers and certificates every Friday.

On Fridays, one child will take our class bear (Adventure Ted) home for the weekend. These rewards will be given when your child shows us a behaviour or knowledge which is above our usual expectations.
