Gentle Reminders!
  • Children need to keep their named PE kit at school all week.  PE is on Monday and Friday but we may have additional PE on some weeks too. 
  • Earrings and jewellery must be removed and long hair tied back please.
  • Water bottles and fruit can be brought each day.
  • Reading with your child for even a few minutes a day really helps them to develop their love of reading as well as their confidence in learning generally.  If you would like further advice about this, or suggestions of books, please do ask. When you do read with your child please complete their Reading Record. The Reading Record needs to be in school everyday too as we often discuss with the children what they are reading outside of class.
