Homework and PE

Our Homework day is as and when informed by Mrs Lang and our PE day is a Wednesday.  Please ensure children have PE kit in school at all time.  Kit will be sent home at the end of each half term for washing.



Additional information about our class:

We have Stay and Play days each half term which is a perfect opportunity for you to come and spend time with your child in their environment.   Reading books will be given out to all children who have brought in permission slips. Your child’s reading day will be written clearly at the front of the book. Your child will need to bring their book in on their correct day in order for it to be changed.   Please can all children bring in a piece of fruit or 30p per day to buy a piece of fruit.  Dinner money is £2.30 per day and needs to be in an envelope clearly labelled with your child’s name.   Children are also welcome to bring a clearly labelled water bottle into class but this does need to contain only water as we are a healthy school.   It is also extremely important that all of your children’s clothing is labelled as it allows us to make sure all children go home with correct uniform.



Do not hesitate to contact Mrs H Lang if you have any questions, however big or small.
