Important information

P.E days are Tuesday and Friday. Please leave your child’s P.E kit in school and ensure it is all clearly named. They need a full indoor and outdoor kit.

Reading books are changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. We would like your child to be reading daily at home as the more they practice the better they will become. Please sign their Reading Record once they have read so that we know their book needs changing.

High frequency words are tested on a Tuesday. Please help your child to learn to read these. These are words that occur regularly in your child’s reading books so it is important that they are able to read them.
