Again this year, pupils will be receiving a new school diary. This will be complete with important school information and can be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers. These diaries will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Please comment on the reading children are doing at home.
This terms Reading Around the World Challenge begins on Tuesday 23rd April and ends on Friday 19th July, your target is 80 reads, good luck!
Reading is fundamental. In fact, it is one of the most important ingredients to becoming all that you can be. Reading develops the brain, provides a window into the world around you and helps you do better in all school subjects. We recommend that children are heard read daily and children can change their reading books when they need to, Early Bird reading Tue-Thurs is a good time to do this.
PE will be taught twice a week on Wednesday and Friday by Mr Unwin the sports coach.
Children need a PE kit in school all week, which should be taken home on a Friday for a wash.
PE kit should include:
- White T-shirt
- Navy or black shorts (indoor PE)
- Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)
Please ensure all PE and uniform (even shoes) are labelled clearly, this helps save time, confusion and will hopefully mean items do not get lost.
