When is PE?
PE will be on Tuesdays for both classes. It is outdoor P.E. Summer term 1.
It is also really helpful if you can make sure your child's hair is tied up and their earrings have been removed before coming to school.
What should be worn for PE?
The national guidance has always been that no jewellery should be worn in PE. It is not safe to cover earrings/studs/sleepers with tape.
On PE days, please send your child to school wearing:
· A white short-sleeved T-shirt (this must be suitable for physical activity)
· Black or navy shorts or jogging bottoms (weather dependant)
· A jumper or pullover (weather dependant)
· Trainers or plimsolls
Please note that our uniform expectations also include PE kits and it is essential that the clothes your child is wearing are suitable for physical activity and sports.
When is Forest School?
Forest School is on Monday mornings for both classes.
We follow Little Wandle Letters and Sounds revised phonics scheme.
Your child will come home with a pleasure for reading book from the library every Friday. Please remember to return them to school each Friday so that they can swap their books. They have access to their E-Book Reading book, which they have been reading at school. Please click here to access the website.
The children are expected to know and be able to solve problems with numbers up to 10. They are learning to recognise numbers up to 20, and count beyond 20.
