Key Weekly Information


Autumn Term 2021

PE is on a Tuesday and a Friday.

Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit in school on these days - the hall can be chilly and on any given day the children may go outside for their session.



Please hear your children read as often as possible, but for no longer than 20 minutes. Books will usually be changed on a daily basis. Please do hear your child read the same book more than once to develop fluency and confidence. Reading to your child is also incredibly important to build up their vocabulary and for enjoyment. Added to this, they are sent home with homework in a book on a Friday
