Children will participate in PE both indoors and outdoors each week. Please ensure your child has a full change of clothes suitable for physical exercise and trainers for each PE lesson. School PE kit is available to buy from the school office. Children are expected to dress appropriately for the weather. All long hair must be tied up and earrings removed or covered during all lessons.
Jamaica class' PE is on Tuesday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor). Greece class' PE is on Thursday (indoor) and Friday (outdoor) .
In term 1 outdoor PE we will be developing our basketball skills and inside PE we will be contintuing to develop our coordination skills with some throw tennis games and bench ball.
Homework relating to the children's Maths and English learning will be handed out every Friday, to be returned by the following Thursday. Homework is designed to further children's learning. Children are encouraged ask for help, at home or school, if needed.
All children read regularly in school: they read weekly in guided reading, once every 3 weeks one-to-one with an adult and are given opportunities to read independently daily. We also share a class story at the end of every day linked to our topic. We give children opportunities to change books regularly. We encourage children to discover books they enjoy so if your child is a free reader, and is enjoying a particular novel at home, they are welcome to bring it to school to read during the day.
