Things to Remember

PE is every Wednesday morning (Sports plus).

PE kits should be in school at all times during term-time and all items of clothing including PE pumps must be clearly labelled with the child's full name.

(These can then be taken home on the last day of each half term to be washed so that they can be brought back in when your child returns to school)


Reading books and planners need to be in school every day. Your child has set aside 1-1 reading time with an adult at least once a week where they are heard reading aloud. On this day, their book will get changed - please see their 'book changing day' on the front of their reading folders.

Red planners are used for our weekly spelling test on a Monday afternoon.

Children can bring a bottle of water or sugar free squash to drink during the day. Fruit is also provided at break times.


Please note: It is important that children get read to and/or with an adult or older sibling every day for at least 20 minutes in order to help develop their reading and comprehension skills. This should be recorded and signed in their reading record books.
