Your children will be doing PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays. They will need to come into school in their PE kits on Thursday, Wednesday will just be games that we can do in our school uniform. PE kits should be black shorts or tracksuit bottoms with a plain white t’shirt – No football shirts please.

PE kits to be worn to school on Thursdays



Please can book bags be in school on Thursday 10th September or Friday 11th September. We will be sending home books on a Friday that need to stay at home for the week, these books will be changed every Friday. Book bags will only need to be in school on a Friday so we can change the children’s books. At the moment we are only sending home a reading book that can be read to the children or they can help you to read the book if they words are not too tricky. This is to ensure the children enjoyment for books continues whilst we are in the process of assessing the children to allocate them new books within our new reading scheme -Read, write, Ink. Thank you for your patience whilst these assessments are taking place.



  • Number Bond Challenge –We will still be doing our number bond challenges but we will be doing these in school at the moment to prevent lots of books having to go between school and home. The children will have time to practise these during the week daily and will be tested every Wednesday. If you would like to know your child progress with these please feel free to email me.


  • RWI and Spellings – Homework based on our new phonics/reading program will be sent home as soon as we have assessed all of the children in KS1.

Your child will be taking part in outdoor learning activities on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please can you bring waterproof’s and Wellies into school for your children, these will remain in school.
