Please ensure your child has a full PE kit in school. This will stay on your child's peg and will be returned home at the end of each term. Our games lessons will be on a Monday for Y2S and a Wednesday for Y2J so children will need a full games kit on these days. 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. 

Please note: PE kits cannot be worn for Games sessions. 


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