Our P.E. days are Mondays and Fridays. Children can leave their PE kits in school on their pegs. Please bring this in a drawstring sports bag and avoid bringing large backpacks as we do not have room for this in our cloakroom.



Fruit is provided for free at break time, or you can bring in your own healthy snack from home. This could be some fruit, vegetable, rice cake etc. Every child should have their own water bottle for in class.

Reading Books and Homework

Please bring your Reading book(s) in every day, even when it's not your day to change your book. You should try to read for 5/10 minutes at home every night. If you read at home x3 times a week and get your adult to acknowledge this in your Reading Record, you will a sticker on your record chart.  The record books/diaries have a phonics section in the middle and a word list too that you can use to check off. Please practice these regularly. 


On Thursdays we visit our school library where we can change our library book. Please remember to bring your library book into school every Thursday! This book is to read for pleasure. So grown ups/older children are welcome to read these books out loud to your child.

Please check Class Dojo regularly as we often send messages out on there. If you need us please also don’t hesitate to send us a message.  Each week we post a weekly update about our learning.
