Our PE session is on a TUESDAY morning. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school (white t-shirt, black or blue PE shorts and black pumps) and all items are labelled with their name. PE kits are kept in school and will be sent home each holiday for a wash!
Homework is set each term and can be accessed on the schools website, under the page 'Curriculum' then 'Year Group Homework'. Please try to complete at least one piece/ task of homework per week.
Your child's reading pack will come home on a Friday. This will include a reading record, a stage reading book and a 'share book' which your child will have chosen from our class libary to share with you at home. Please return this on a Monday.
Your child has their own login to Bug Club (www.activelearnprimary.co.uk). This includes reading books which are updated regularly and includes lots of fun games for your child to access too.
