Please make sure you read with your child at least three times a week, 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.
Our PE Days this half term are Wednesday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor)
Please make sure children have both indoor and outdoor PE kit in school all week as PE days can change. Indoor kit includes pumps, shorts and a t-shirt. Outdoor kit includes trainers, long trousers, a t-shirt and a long sleeved top.
