Things to remember...

  • PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday.  Children are expected to come to school on those days wearing their PE kits and suitable footwear.  On Wednesday children will have PE outside and must therefore have appropriate footwear.
  • Children are permitted to bring in a named water bottle each day.


  • Spellings will be sent home every Tuesday.
  • Children will be provided with a reading book that is appropriate to their reading/phonics ability.  Children will require a reading bag to keep their book in.  Reading bags must be brought to school every day.  Children's reading books will be changed on a Tuesday and Thursday.
