Physical Education

Please bring your child’s P.E. kit in at the beginning of each half term and leave it in school. Warm kits will be needed too and suitable outdoor shoes.

Our PE kit is a white t-shirt, black shorts and black plimsolls.



Listening to stories with your child and regular support with their reading book is very important, thank you for your continued support. The children will also be given homework on a homework grid every half term, which is to be returned to school as each piece of homework is completed. They will also recieve weekly spellings. Spelling tests will take place on a Wednesday.

If you have any questions, then please don’t hesitate to ask.


Thank you for your support.
