For your information:


  • P.E lessons are on a Tuesday afternoon. Until Easter this will be Swimming. Please ensure children bring a full swimming kit including a towel each Tuesday. Earrings are not allowed to be worn in P.E so must be out on Tuesdays.


  • Your child’s reading book is changed daily. Please could you make sure you read with your child and write a comment in their diary to ensure that their book is changed. Book must be seen and read at least once a week – a text will be sent home on a Friday if we haven’t seen your child’s book in the week. After each book has been read, a ‘pink book task’ must be completed at any point during reading the book.


Feel free to come and see me after school if you have any queries or questions. I am always happy to help and value your involvement in your child’s education.
