Physical Education

Monday is when the children have PE in school. On Wednesdays they will be going to Eckington for swimming lessons. All children require the correct kit to do PE, which consists of a plain white t-shirt, blue or black shorts and a change of footwear. It is vital that children have appropriate footwear to support their feet correctly when doing PE, otherwise this could result in injury.

Homework

All homework will be given out every Wednesday and will need to be returned by the following Monday. The accompanying sheet will need to be signed by an adult at home and returned with the homework. Homework with consist of regular reading at home, times table practice and a separate task. The separate task will be either maths, English, EGPaS or topic work and will be based on what the children have been, or will be, learning. If you ever have any questions regarding homework set then please don’t hesitate to come and see me.

New spellings are given out every Monday based on a new spelling rule. These are to be learnt for a test the following Monday.
