Our P.E day is Thursday afternoon with Mr Allen. Please make sure that your child has their full P.E kit in school, labelled with their name. Children MUST have their earrings taken out/ taped up by yourselves before coming into school in the morning.


Please read with your child at least 3 times a week for 10 minutes every night. Remember to sign the diary, this will get stamped in your reading quest card. When this card is full your child will receive a prize. Please make sure reading records are in school every day.

Books will be changed once a week on either a Tuesday or Thursday.

In a morning, children will put their books in the read or not read box.

The teachers will listen to your child read in phonics every day and through guided reading (at least twice a week.)
