Reading

Your child will be given a book and a reading record bookmark to take home with them. If they wish to read a book from home then please do. Parents can initial the bookmark every time they read with their child and the class teacher will do so also. 

If your child is a Free Reader they will be a part of the Reading Pro scheme. This will involve them receiving a username and password which will be set up in the coming weeks. In this time the children will complete quizzes to help them choose an appropriate book that they will enjoy.

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Friday, but these are subject to change. Please make sure their kit is in school at all times. 

Snack

Please ensure your child has a small piece of fruit or vegetable for snack time. This will be eaten outside so please keep this in mind.
