PE Kits

PE is every Friday morning. This is a reminder for children with earrings - you need to either take the earrings out on a Friday or provide plasters to cover them. This is a part of their PE kit too. Please help your child to be more independent in putting on and off their own clothes and make sure all clothes are clearly named. Thank you!

WOW Moments

Thank you to those who have provided work that their children have done at home. We would still love to see any work your children have done at home that you think is “WOW”. It can be a piece of writing, number work, a photo of something you have done or made… anything!! This term we are focusing on finding number and calculation evidence. So if your child has counted out up to 20 objects or can add or take away 2 numbers or find one more or less, please let us know or take a photo/copy of their work.
