PE kit

Please make sure that your child has their full P.E kit in school every day, this includes green shorts, a white T-shirt and pumps or trainers. P.E is on a Thursday afternoon.




Reading is the greatest learning gift we can give to our children, your child’s ability to read and understand a range of texts will make a significant impact on all areas of their learning across the curriculum. Please take the time to read daily with your child. Your child’s reading record will be checked every day, they will be able to change their book each day if they have completed it, although as they progress through the reading scheme it is normal for a book to take two or three nights to complete. We expect the children to read each school night aim for around 10 minutes each time. The children will have the opportunity to change their school reading books when they come in to school in the morning.



All children will receive spellings on a Friday, with the test the following Thursday.
