​​Things to Remember

Thursday is our PE day. Children should come to school in their PE kits. Kits consist of black shorts, a white t-shirt and black pumps.

Homework and spellings are given out on a Friday. Spellings are tested on the following Friday. We would appreciate it if homework and spellings could be back in school by Wednesday, so that homework can be marked and new homework can be put in the children's book bags ready for Friday. 

Reading Books
Children will take home a book chosen by the teacher. Please could you write a comment in your child's white reading diary once they have read to you. Reading books will be sent home on a Friday and should be returned to school by the following Friday.
