Please include appropriate outdoor clothing and footwear as children will be undertaking outdoor PE and the key sport is rugby this half term. PE is on Monday and Thursday
Reading records will given out with appropriate books in the first few days. The school expectation is that every child should read at home at least three times per week but five times per week is encouraged. Please sign the record to indicate that you child has read. Books can be changed when finished.
Homework will be given out on Thursday and returned on Tuesday morning. You will receive a homework book and protective plastic folder once term commences.
Water bottles. Every child needs their own water bottle. They can refill their bottle in the classroom. Please make sure that it suitable for taking outside as well and not part of their packed lunch.
