We have PE on a Tuesday afternoon so please bring your PE kit on this day. PE kit should include black shorts and a white t-shirt for indoor PE and tracksuit bottoms, jumper/jacket and suitable shoes/trainers for outdoor games. We are monitoring who brings the correct clothes for PE.
We hear readers and change books on a daily basis. Each child reads and has their book changed at least once a week. Please bring your book bag with your reading record. Please remember to write a comment.
We have just introduced the Bug Club which enables children to access story books digitally. You will find more information regarding Bug Club on our school website in the Literacy area.
Homework is a short task each week that reinforces basic skills. Homework is sent home on a Friday and is to be completed before the following Wednesday.
Merits are given out daily for things like super work, good effort being kind or achieving something extra special.
We also have a merit assembly on a Friday. Merit certificates are given to children in each class for hard work or effort.
