PE will be on Monday afternoons and Thursday mornings.

Please ensure that indoor and outdoor PE kits are in school all the time. Trainers are more suitable for outdoor PE. Children will be outside (weather permitting) after the Easter Break so please ensure they have outdoor kit with them.

Sometimes PE days will need to change due to the weather or due to other school commitments.   

 

What is happening in class this week?

 Literacy work

The Jungle Book

We will be basing some of our work on The Jungle Book story. If children have a version of the story they can bring it into school to share. 

Spelling Tests 

We will be testing children using the Common Exception Words and spelling they have learned in letters and sounds. We will not be sending words home to learn every week. We will let you know what we are learning each week. Children can continue to learn common exception words at home. spelling tests will start on Tuesday 31st October.
