A few helpful reminders

  • On Thursday's, we have indoor and outdoor PE (children to come to school in PE kit.)
  • On Fridays,  books must be brought into school and the children will swap them for another. 

To help your child learn, you could:

  • Talk to them about their school day
  • Listen to them read at least three times per week
  •  Practise times tables regularly
  • Ensure PE kit is in school everyday
  • Complete the activities set on Maths with Parents and Gooseberry Planet, together.
