PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday. All children will need: Blue/black shorts, a white t-shirt and pumps or trainers. In colder weather they will need blue/black jogging bottoms and sweatshirt. The children are asked to come into school wearing their PE kit on these days.
It is very important that your child brings a water bottle into school so that they are kept hydrated throughout the school day. Please ensure that the water bottles are clearly labelled and contain only water. It is important that they take them home everyday to be refilled.
Homework will be set via homework book. Further information for parents will be sent out about this. The homework will be set at the beginning of each term and is to be returned via homework book each week. Please aim to complete at least one challenge per week. The children will receive homework that supports their learning and extends their skills. Homework is a vital component so please encourage your child to complete their homework. If there are any issues or questions, please feel free to send me a dojo.
