Homework will continue to be given out each Wednesday and MUST be completed and returned by the following Monday. This gives the children enough time to see their class teacher if they are struggling. The purpose of this work is to consolidate the learning from class and to prepare them for more intensive homework at high school. It is therefore extremely important that this work is completed. Any children who fail to bring/complete their homework on Monday will have to complete it during their playtime.
Children will have an independent reading book which will be brought home on a daily basis and MUST be returned to school every day. Reading records will be given to the children for parents to fill out as and when their child reads during the week at home.
- A P.E. kit consists of: a white t-shirt, blue (or black) shorts, and a pair of pumps (indoor use) / sports trainers for outdoor use, which they should leave in school. As an optional extra, a dark coloured pair of jogging trousers and a jumper can also be worn when we are outside / during the winter months.
- If your child has pierced ears, it would be much appreciated if you could remove their earrings on each morning of P.E. Please note that staff are not able to remove them or cover them, so this will result in your child not taking part in our P.E. lesson and an alternative task will be provided for the child, this is due to health and safety reasons. Long hair must be tied back.
- Please ensure your child has a P.E. kit in school at all times. All P.E. kit must be labeled clearly with your child’s name. If it becomes lost, it can easily be returned to the rightful owner. If your child does not have their P.E. kit in school you may receive a text message to inform you that they need it for the following week.
