    PE and Games

    Lessons are normally on Mondays and Thursdays, but it is helpful for children to have kit in school at all times. Please ensure that kit is labelled. 

    Notes from class teacher:

    Your child should be reading at least 3 times a week, and filling in their planner. Reading books need to be in school every day along with planners.

    In this critical run-up to SATS, please encourage your child to work through the study guides which were given out at the start of the year.
