PE

Children that wear earrings should be able to remove these themselves, or not wear these on PE days. (It is advisable to have ears pierced at the beginning of the summer holiday).

We do PE twice a week, usually on Mondays and Thursdays, therefore, PE kit should be kept in school all week to give school flexibility when timetable changes are needed.

Homework

  • Spellings will come home on a Monday to practise and be tested at school on the following Monday.
  • Maths homework will consist of times table practise and will also be set on a Monday and be due in on the following Monday.  
  • Reading books will be in your child’s book bag and we encourage them to read daily. Please ensure their book comes with them every day as we begin each day with reading.
