Please ensure that your child always comes into school with a coat, especially with the weather getting colder.
Please provide your child with a water bottle every day. This is as well as a drink in their lunch box if they are having a packed lunch.
We have PE 2 times during the school week - on Monday and Wednesday. All children must have their PE kit in school every day to ensure that they can participate. We will continue to do PE outside once a week so please provide your child with appropriate clothing eg: tracksuit and trainers.
Girls need to have earrings covered and hair tied back. Please also ensure that children have their name in each part of their kit! If your child is unable to take part in PE due to illness or injury, please notify me in writing including the reason for non-participation.
Please have your child's name in all of their clothes and belongings!
Children are expected to read 5 times a week and record it in their reading records. They are also given a reading target, once a week, which needs to be completed. Children will be able to change their books when they have completed them. They will be heard by a member of staff a minimum of once a week by either Miss Prince, Mrs Gray or myself.
