PE: Please ensure that your child has the correct PE kit, clearly labelled with their name.  For Indoor PE, black shorts, white T-shirt and plimsolls/trainers are required with the addition of dark tracksuit bottoms/sweatshirt/leggings for Outdoor PE.  This needs to be in a suitable, labelled PE bag. PE kits stay in school until half term as lesson times/days may change.

Homework (spelling, literacy and maths) is given out on Friday and collected in on the following Thursday.  A topic based project may be given out and should be submitted before the end of term. Children will have a weekly spelling test and daily arithmetic challenges.  Please be advised that SATS Tests will be administered during the week of 13th May to 16th May 2019.

All children have a Reading Record book which is for them to complete as they read books taken from their class reading corner.  Please encourage your child to read on a daily basis.
