Hope you all had a very exciting Easter Holidays! 


Important Reminders:

  • P.E.

Every Thursday we have P.E. and Outdoor education. EVERY child needs to come into school wearing their PE Kit and bring their FULL school uniform to change into.


  • Swimming

Every Friday Year 4’s go swimming! Children need to bring their swimming kit and a towel. Children are also allowed to bring a healthy snack and a bottle of water or a still drink.


  • Homework

Homework is given out on a Friday and should be returned to school by Wednesday Morning. Spellings will also be given out and children will have to learn the spellings for their spellings test.


  • Planners

Planners must be brought to school every day and signed by a parent or guardian at the end of the week, every week.


The new planners also include a reading record. We expect children to read at least 3 times a week! Once you’ve listened to your child, make a comment and sign it. We will then add up all the comments. Let's see who can get all four Book Bucks!
