Teacher: Miss Thomas

PE Kits

PE will be on a Thursday morning. Please send PE kits into school for the lesson and they can be left in school until half term. Please make sure all PE kit items are named and that the children have suitable outdoor and indoor clothing. Trainers are advisable, in addition to pumps.

Swimming

From Wednesday 13th September, children in years 3 and 4 will attend swimming lessons each Wednesday and Friday morning. The lesson commences at 9:15, therefore the coach will leave promptly at 9 o'clock. 

Pupil Planners

Planners are required in school every day.  Reading aloud at home should be done at least 3 times per week, even if you only have time to read a few pages. Please ensure that you make a note in your child’s planner to let us know how your child is reading. Children can write in their own planners in KS2 as long as a parent confirms this reading at least once per week.

In the planner there are several sections that must be read and completed by parents/carers. It is important that that you complete these sections as soon as possible and encourage your child to look at the sections they can complete.

Homework 

Your child will be given out on a Friday to be completed and returned by the following Wednesday.  Your child will be expected to complete Maths and Grammar homework in addition to learning spellings, times tables and reading every week.

Lunch and snacks

From September 2017 the cost of a school lunch will be £2.20.  The menu is available on the school website. Children can purchase a healthy snack every day at a cost of 30p for one item and 60p for two. 

If you have any other queries please do not hesitate to contact us.  You can leave messages for us at the school office, talk to us at home time and you can also write in your child’s planner.
