Reading – Children are expected to read every night for 15 minutes and their Reading Record should be signed.
Our PE lessons are on Mondays and Fridays, the children need their PE kit in school every day in case sessions change. Please ensure all uniform is clearly labelled with their name. If your child wears earrings they need to be able to remove them or cover them with tape. In the Spring Term the children will swim, lessons will start straight after the Christmas holiday on a Monday afternoon.
Mid-morning snacks and drinks
Children can bring in a snack to eat at break. This should either be fresh or dried fruit, a cereal bar, a yoghurt tube (e.g. Frubes) or similar finger food (no crisps or chocolate please). There is also the option for the children to buy a piece of fruit from the office when they arrive in the morning. This costs 20p per day or £1 for the whole week.
It is useful for the children to have a water bottle in class, so that they can have a drink quickly, particularly when the weather is hot.
