Important information


PE will take place on Tuesday and Friday. Please make sure your child has the correct PE kit; shorts or jogging bottoms, grey / black, white polo shirt or plain white t-shirt, trainers or pumps. 



Children are required to read everyday at home, whether it be from a book / magazine / newpaper if entirely up to yourself and the child. It is preferably to read with an adult and have their reading book changed at least once a week with their reading record signed.



A visit to the school library will be on Tuesday. Children will be able to choose books to take home to read and change them on the following Tuesday afternoon.



Spelling will be given on Monday.  This will involve children researching words with similar spelling patterns.  A test will be conducted on Friday. Ten basic words with the spelling pattern will be chosen.
