Reading

While most children now are independent readers, reading at home is still crucial. Children should read for 15 minutes each night - this can be either their home reader of a book of their own choice. This will be more productive if it is carried out in a calm, quiet environment. Both parents/carers and pupils are encouraged to sign the planners to acknowledge this. The children are also encouraged to use the school library and bring books home that they enjoy. The pupils will be heard reading independently at least once a fortnight by Mr Jacot with further reading support given throughout the week.

 

PE

PE lessons take place on a Thursday afternoon every week. All children are expected to take part in a full PE kit and trainers/pumps. Earrings can be won at school but, for health and safety reasons, they are not allowed during PE.

 

Swimming

Please encourage your child to be responsible for bringing their kit in! We will be using the pool as much as possible to develop our swimming skills and any pupil who forgets their kit will have to stay in the classroom and work.
