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 or School House 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 Mathletics tasks, set of spelling words (written and on Spelling Shed) and an option from the Homework menu. 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.
