General reminders...
  • The children will be participating in PE lessons twice a week on Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure your child has his/her PE kit in school on a Monday and that it stays in school all week. Please ensure that all items are clearly labelled. If your child wears earrings, for their own safety please could you remove these on PE days, if possible. 
  • Please ensure that you send your child with water in their water bottle and not juice. 
  • Please make a brief note (or initial) every time your child reads their reading books with you. We then know that they are ready to change their books each week.

The websites below are very useful to support your learning at home. Have fun!
