Outdoor PE is on a Monday afternoon. Children will need a plain white t-shirt, plain black or grey tracksuit bottoms, a plain black or grey tracksuit top/sweatshirt, and trainers. Indoor PE is on a Friday Morning. Children will need a plain white t-shirt and plain black shorts. Please leave their P.E. kit in school when possible because P.E. times may sometimes change. Please write your child's name in all their kit!



Please make sure you read your child's school reading book with them for at least 10 minutes per day. Reading is a 'building block' on which much of their other learning rests, and regular reading at home makes a huge difference in the classroom. If you would like any support or advice on helping your child with their reading, please pop in after school to see their teacher.


Children will receive spellings to learn at home every Friday which they will use in their English work the following week. Children are also expected to go on Times Table Rockstars at least once a week. Please let your child's teacher know if you do not have access to the app at home. 



This term our topic is 'Ourselves'. Within this topic we will be having lots of fun learning about our bodies and how we grow up. We will be learning about our families and what we enjoy doing and also about the area in which we live.
