When is PE?

PE will be Thursdays for both classes. 

Please remember to send your child into school in their PE kit! 

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


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.


Please allow your child to read daily using their picture books to tell their own stories and build their vocabulary.
