Please make sure that your child has their PE kit in school at all times and that every item of clothing is named. They will need appropriate footwear to be able to participate in outdoor PE.

Reading

Children regularly read to adults in school as well as independently. Therefore, it is imperative that your child brings in their reading record and school reading book into school every day.

It’s important that children experience reading to adults, reading independently and being read to regularly. Please make sure to write in the reading record every time your child has read at home.
