Please ensure that your child always comes into school with a coat, especially with the weather getting colder.

Water bottles
Please provide your child with a water bottle (containing water, not juice or flavoured water) and a snack (which should be fruits or veg) every day. This is as well as a drink in their lunch box if they are having a packed lunch.

We will have PE two times during the school week - on Tuesday and Thursday. All children must have their PE kit in school every day to ensure that they can participate. We will do PE outside as much as possible,so please provide your child with appropriate clothing eg: tracksuit and trainers.

Children need to have earrings covered by micropore tape and hair tied backPlease 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!

Every child is given a reading book and a new reading record to read at home. They need to have it in their bag everyday, so we can hear them read in school as well. Please make sure that the reading record book has been signed to say that your child has read at home. If it is not signed, we will assume that the book has not been read. Children should read at home at least 5 times per week.

Spellings are given out on Monday and tested on the following Monday ( In their yellow books). English is set on Wednesday and due back in by the following Monday. Maths is set on Friday and due back in by the following Wednesday.

The children will have 15 spellings from the spelling pattern given out plus the 5 high frequency words taken from the national curriculum year 3/4 list.
