Useful Information

Children should wear P.E kit (white t-shirt and black tracksuit or leggings), green jumper if it is cold) on P.E days. 

Children should also bring a water bottle to school so that they do not have to leave a lesson when they get thirsty.


Children will be provided with weekly homework. This may include maths based activities, writing activities and/or other activities relating to the curriculum. Home reading books are also being sent home. Please return these as soon as they have been read (alongside a comment on their home reading record) so that a new book can be given out.

It is expected that parents or carers will read with their children at least 3 times a week for roughly 10 minutes.
