P.E Kits and Uniform

 

We ask that all uniform is clearly named.  We expect all children to be equipped with a full PE kit: shorts, t-shirt, socks and trainers as well as a jumper and tracksuit bottoms or leggings whilst the weather is cold.

For swimming children must come equipped with a swim suit, swimming hat and towel. If your child has a verruca, socks can be purchased from the office.

Children with pierced ears should remove earrings for all PE sessions including swimming, and must have their hair tied back for health and safety reasons.

 

 Times Tables

Times tables will be practiced twice weekly in class. Once a term we will have a quiz. Don't forget to use 'Times Table Rockstars' to help you with your tables.

If you have forgotten your login, don't forget to ask your teacher.

 


RACE TO READ

 

We encourage children to read as much as possible from their own books, school library and local library.  Every time they return their reading journal to school, they can move up their 'Race to Read' chart in their classroom, earning certificates as they go!

The children have all been given an 'Active Learn' login (Bug Club) so they can access books online at home.

 

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to ask.

 

Thank you
