Swimming and PE:

This term we will be learning athletics and rounders in PE. Please ensure your child comes with suitable clothes for this: Black jogging bottoms/black shorts, trainers, socks, a black/grey jumper/hoodie and a white t-shirt. We will be outside whatever the weather!


PE will be on a Monday morning and swimming will be every Wednesday this term.


For ease, we have suggested that all swimming kits/PE kits are brought into school on a Monday and returned home on a Friday.

* If your child wears earrings, please ensure they come with something they can store these in to prevent losing them during PE/Swimming.

* If your child has long hair, please ensure they bring a hair bobble that day.



Homework will be given out on a Thursday and will be collected in on a Tuesday every week.  If you/your child have any questions about the homework, please do not hesitate to speak to Mr. Stacey.


Homework must be in on a Tuesday morning or children will have to stay in on a Tuesday lunchtime to complete homework.
