Our PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please bring in a named PE kit to leave at school. We will send home the PE kits at half-term to be washed.

Please remember to write in the pink reading diaries every time you read at home and tick any keywords that your child can read by sight.

There are logins for Google Classroom, Bug Club, Mathletics, and EdShed in the front of the pink reading diaries.


We look forward to working with you!
