Spellings will be given out on Thursdays. The spelling test is also on Thursday. Children who do not hand their spelling folder in on Thursday, will complete their spelling homework on Thursday lunchtimes. Spare sheets are kept in the classroom in case anyone loses their homework. 

All children are expected to read every day at home. This can be a mixture of independently and with an adult. Diaries should be signed and dated as evidence. 

PE

This half term PE will be on Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure that your child’s PE kit is in school on both of these days. The children will need to be prepared for both outside and inside PE so that we can continue with our timetable despite weather conditions. Please make sure that your child has a PE jumper and tracksuit bottoms during the cold weather. PE clothes should be of school uniform colours (White, grey, blue, navy or black).
Please make sure that all kit and school uniform is clearly named.
