Please ensure your child wears their PE kit on PE days.  This consists of blue shorts/joggers/leggings, white t-shirt and a Newfold red hoodie.  Our games lessons will be on a Wednesday and PE on a Tuesday. Please ensure all items of PE kit and school uniform are labelled with your child's name as it is so easy for them to get mixed up. Please can we remind you if your child has pierced ears you must provide plasters to cover them up. 



Reading Books

Please try to encourage your child to read their school reading book at least three times a week. Please make a note in your child's home school diary when they have read and if they require a new book so that we can ensure books are changed promptly.  Please ensure that your child's reading book is in school every day.


Please find a range of on-line learning resources that you may wish to access throughout the year.
