Our P.E day this half term will be Thursday.
Across the school this year, the children will be changing in school for P.E so will need to wear their uniform as usual and bring P.E kit in a bag. Please send children in with their kit in a labelled bag (house colour or white plain t-shirt, dark shorts or joggers, trainers - velcro if possible please.)
Please remove earrings for P.E days. Where this is not possible we ask that you provide micropore tape or plasters so that they can be covered. Long hair should be tied back. As the children are climbing this year please ensure that their P.E kits do not have hoods on them.
Library: We visit the library on a Wednesday.
Reading: We hear the children read at least once a week. They may be called to read on any given day, so please return bags and books on Mondays, in readiness for that week.
Information: Please check Twitter for regular updates and photographs- @Year1TPS
Homework: This will come home via a letter every half term with project ideas for your family to enjoy together.
In addition to this please learn the key words and learn its sums that are regularly sent home for your child.
If you have any questions please pop in and see us, we are always happy to help.
Thank you for your continued support.
