Useful information.


Your child is encouraged to read their reading book regularly and they will be able to change their book daily. As the children become better readers and more confident with their phonics and understanding, they will be reading longer books which may then take 2 or 3 days to read.


Library day is Wednesday when children can bring their library book into school to change.


P.E. days are on Monday and Thursday. Please can children with earrings either have them taken out at home, or be provided with tape to keep them safe during these lessons. PE is dance and games this half term. We will try to have outdoor PE on Thursdays, weather permitting.
