PE

Our PE days will be on Monday and Friday
Please ensure PE kits have been sent in clearly labelled.  On PE days please remember to take out your child's earrings and make sure long hair is tied back.  All PE kits should have a pair of plimsolls or trainers in them should we do PE outside. 

Reading Books
 If your child has read with you, please remember to sign your child's reading record diary.  During the day the children will then have the opportunity to change their book.  On a Friday children will be able to take home a library book rather then a book from the reading scheme. 
Remember children should read at least 5 times a week.  They will then be entered into the weekly reading raffle to win a prize.
