  • Please ensure full P.E. kit is in school. 1C will have P.E. on Monday and Thursday. 1T will have P.E. on Wednesday and Thursday. P.E. kits can be left in lockers until half term when we will send them home to be washed.
  • Every day, children should bring their reading book and record in their book bags as well as a named bottle of water.
  • Children should be reading at home daily. We will listen to the children read on their own regularly in school in addition to their reading lessons.
  • Reading books can be changed when the children have read them and can discuss/answer questions about what they have read. When you read at home, please add a short note in the reading records to record what the children have read. In class, there will be a basket for children to place their books in when they need to be changed. We will encourage children to complete this independently.
