Key notices:

PE: Monday and Thursday.

  • The children need to bring a full PE kit and water bottle on these days. Earrings must be removed or (if freshly pierced) the children need to bring in tape to cover them up. Adults in school will not remove earrings or provide tape. 



  • Every Friday the children will take home a list of spellings and a maths focus to work on at home. They will be quizzed on these the following Friday. Please work on these at home so that the children are fully prepared for the quiz.
