School Diary

Please continue to record in your child’s school diary when they have read at home. Child should be reading at least four times a week to an adult and this will contribute towards our school reading challenge. This can also be used as a point of contact between parents and teachers and they will be checked on a weekly basis. It is therefore the children’s responsibility to have them in school every day. Your child will also record their weekly spellings.

Physical Education

PE is every Monday and Wednesday.  We ask the children to bring kit suitable for indoor and outdoor sessions.  Please make sure each item of clothing is clearly named.  This should include:

  • White T-shirt
  • Navy shorts (indoor PE)
  • Plimsolls/trainers
  • Navy or black tracksuit top and bottoms (for colder weather)

You will need to take your child’s kit home weekly to wash and prepare for the following week.
